Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

Jeremiah 36:15

 

 

They said to him, "Sit down, please, and read it to us." So Baruch read it to them.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And they said unto him, sit down now,.... Or, "pray sit down"F17שב נא "sede quaeso", Vatablus, Schmidt. ; they received him very courteously, and treated him with great humanity, and showed much respect to him, in beseeching him to sit down by them:

and read it in our ears; as he had done in the ears of the people, with an audible voice, clearly and distinctly, that they might be able to hear it, so as to understand it:

so Baruch read it in their ears; without any fear or dread, though in the king's palace, and before an assembly of princes; nor did he excuse himself on account of weariness, having just read it to the people; or upbraid the princes with not being in the temple, where they might have heard it.

Ver. 15. And they said, Sit down now] (a) This was some courtesy and token of good respect to Baruch. These princes were not all out so bad as their king.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

The courage of Baruch is admirable, he was now before the council, in the king’s house, the substance of the prophecies were threatening both to the king and court, and to all the people. The king, as appears by all history, was of no good temper; we read, Jeremiah 26:23, of his sending for Urijah the prophet out of Egypt; when he had fled thither for fear of the king, and slaying him, and we shall find that at that time the princes advised both Jeremiah and Baruch to hide themselves; yet Baruch is not afraid, but reads the prophecy in their ears.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

15. Sit down — A token of respect. This attention probably intimates the favour with which the “princes” regarded both Baruch and Jeremiah.
