Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

Jeremiah 52:33

 

 

So Jehoiachin changed his prison clothes, and had his meals in the king's presence regularly all the days of his life.

Adam Clarke Commentary

And changed his prison garments - That is, Jehoiachin changed his own garments, that he might be suited in that respect to the state of his elevation. Kings also, in token of favor, gave caftans or robes to those whom they wish to honor.

And he did continually eat bread before him - Was a constant guest at the king's table.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And changed his prison garments,.... Which were filthy, and of an ill smell; and put on him raiment more comfortable, as well as more honourable, and suitable to his dignity, and more fit to appear in, in the presence of the king and his court:

and he did continually eat bread before him all the days of his life: either at the same table with the king; or at other near him, in his sight, in the same apartment; though the former seems more likely; and this he did as long as he lived; either Evilmerodach, or rather Jeconiah; though perhaps they both died much about the same time. All this was done about the year of the world 3444, and about five hundred sixty years before Christ, according to Bishop UsherF20Annales Vet. Test. p. 138. and Mr. BedfordF21Scripture Chronology, p. 710. ; the authors of the Universal HistoryF23Vol. 21. p. 64. place it a year earlier.
