And burnt the house of the Lord,.... The temple built by Solomon, after it had stood four hundred and seventy years, six months, and ten days, according to JosephusF26Autiqu. l. 10. c. 8. sect. 5. : but the Jews say it stood but four hundred ten yearsF1T. Bab. Bava Bathra, fol. 3. 2. & Gloss. in ib. :

and the king's house; the royal palace; probably that which was built by Solomon, 1 Kings 7:1;

and all the houses of Jerusalem: of any note or strength:

and all the houses of the great men burnt he with fire; of the princes and nobles in Jerusalem; it is in the singular number, "and every house of the great one"; or "every great house"F2ואת כל בית הגדול "omnem domum magnatis", Cocceius; "omnemque domum magnam", Pagninus, Montanus, Schmidt. ; Jarchi interprets it of the synagogue, where prayer was magnified; and others, he says, understood it of the schools, where the law was magnified.
