Wesley's Explanatory Notes
Jeremiah 27

 

 

Verse 2

Thus saith the LORD to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck,

Thus saith — God commands the prophet to procure some yokes with bonds to make them more fast; and to put one of them upon his own neck, that therein he might be a type both to his own people, and also the people afterward mentioned, that they should be in bondage to the king of Babylon.


Verse 3

And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of Judah;

Of Edom — These nations were neighbours to the Jews, and their princes had their ambassadors resident in Jerusalem.


Verse 7

And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.

All nations — That is, all these nations.

His son — And Evil-Merodach his son, and Belshazzar his grand-child.

Until — Until the period of his kingdom shall come, which was after seventy years, according to chap29:10.
