Jeremiah 26:6

 

 

then I will make this house like Shiloh, and this city I will make a curse to all the nations of the earth.""'

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Then will I make this house like Shiloh,.... Where the ark was until it was taken by the Philistines; and then the Lord forsook his tabernacle there, Psalm 78:60; and so he threatens to do the like to the temple at Jerusalem, should they continue in their disobedience to him; See Gill on Jeremiah 7:12 and See Gill on Jeremiah 7:14;

and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth; that is, the city of Jerusalem, which should be taken up, and used proverbially in all countries; who, when they would curse anyone, should say, the Lord make thee as Jerusalem, or do unto thee as he has done to Jerusalem.

Calvin's Commentary on the Bible

Then will I make, etc. : the copulative is to be rendered here as an adverb of time. What had been just said, “but ye have not hearkened,” was by way of anticipation; for the Jews, swelling with great arrogance, might have immediately said, “Oh! what new thing dost thou bring? Except ye hearken to my voice, saith Jehovah, to walk in my Law, which I have set before you, as though all this were not well known even to children among us; and yet thou pretendest to be the herald of some extraordinary prophecy; certainly such boasting will be deemed puerile by all wise men.” Thus then they might have spoken, but the Prophet here briefly checks the insolence of such a foolish censure, but ye have not hearkened; as though he had said, that he had not been sent in vain to speak of a thing as it were new and unusual, because the Jews had corrupted the whole Law, had become disobedient, unteachable, and unbelieving, and had despised both the Law of God and his Prophets.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Jeremiah 26:6 Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.

Ver. 6. Then will I make this house like Shiloh.] This same threat Jeremiah had uttered in good Josiah’s days, [Jeremiah 7:12-14] and no harm ensued. Now, tempora mutantur, truth breedeth hatred; and the prophet is in danger, for discharging his conscience, to be murdered; as were Rogers, Bradford, Taylor, and other famous preachers in those dog days of Queen Mary.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

Shiloh was the city where the tabernacle was pitched, and the ark, the symbol of God’s presence, was, Jude 18:31 21:19 1 Samuel 1:3,9,24 3:21. Out of it the ark was carried, 1 Samuel 4:3, when it was taken by the Philistines, and was carried no more thither, but rested in Kirjath-jearim, 1 Samuel 7:2, where it rested twenty years. David fetched it from thence, 2 Samuel 6:2. So that, as the psalmist tells us, Psalms 78:60,61, God forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh; here he threateneth to do the like as to the temple, because of which they had such a confidence. Jeremiah, Jeremiah 7:12, had spoken much the same thing; it is a threatening that God would deprive them of his ordinances. To which he addeth a threatening of destruction to the city, to that degree, that when men should curse any place, they should say, God do unto thee as he did to Jerusalem. We had the like phrase Jeremiah 24:9, and have it again Jeremiah 29:18,22, &c.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - Unabridged

Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.

Then will I make this house like Shiloh - where the ark was set up at first, and from which it was taken by the Israelites to save them in their battle against the Philistines: but in vain, because it was taken by the latter (note, Jeremiah 7:13-14; 1 Samuel 4:10-12; Psalms 78:60).

I will make this city a curse - (Jeremiah 24:9; Isaiah 65:15).

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(6) I will make this house like Shiloh.—See Notes on Jeremiah 7:14. The surprise and anger with which the announcement was received indicate that it was now heard for the first time, and so far confirms the view that we have here a summary of the discourse given in extenso, and probably edited, as it were, with many additions, in Jeremiah 7-10
