Jeremiah 38:23 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

After this solemn asseveration of the king, Jeremiah said to him, "Thus saith Jahveh, the God of hosts, the God of Israel: If thou wilt assuredly go out to the princes of the king of Babylon [i.e., wilt surrender thyself to them, cf. 2 Kings 18:31; 2 Kings 24:12], then thy soul shall live, and this city shall not be burned with fire, and thou and thy house shall live. But if thou dost not go out to the princes of the king of Babylon, then this city will be given into the hand of the Chaldeans, and they shall burn it with fire, and thou shalt not escape out of their hand." The word of God is the same that Jeremiah had already repeatedly announced to the king, cf. Jeremiah 34:2-5; Jeremiah 32:4; Jeremiah 21:4-10. The princes (chiefs, generals) of the king of Babylon are named, because they commanded the besieging army (Jeremiah 39:3, Jeremiah 39:13); Nebuchadnezzar himself had his headquarters at Riblah, Jeremiah 39:5.
