Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 15:11

_ _ Verily — literally, “Shall it not be?” that is, “Surely it shall be.”

_ _ thy remnant — the final issue of thy life; thy life, which now seems to thee so sad, shall eventuate in prosperity [Calvin]. They who think that they shall be the surviving remnant, whereas thou shalt perish, shall themselves fall, whereas thou shalt remain and be favored by the conquerors [Junius], (Jeremiah 40:4, Jeremiah 40:5; Jeremiah 39:11, Jeremiah 39:12). The Keri reads, “I will set thee free (or as Maurer, ‘I will establish thee’) for good” (Jeremiah 14:11; Ezra 8:22; Psalms 119:122).

_ _ to entreat thee well — literally, “to meet thee”; so “to be placable, nay, of their own accord to anticipate in meeting thee with kindness” [Calvin]. I prefer this translation as according with the event (Jeremiah 39:11, Jeremiah 39:12; Jeremiah 40:4, Jeremiah 40:5). Gesenius, from Jeremiah 7:16; Jeremiah 27:18; Job 21:15, translates (not only will I relieve thee from the enemy’s vexations, but) “I will make thine enemy (that now vexeth thee) apply to thee with prayers” (Jeremiah 38:14; Jeremiah 42:2-6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 15:10-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 15:11

Thy remnant — The latter words of the verse expound the former; for by remnant is meant the remnant of days that Jeremiah had to live.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 15:11

The LORD said, (m) Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee [well] in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.

(m) In this perplexity the Lord comforted me, and said that my last days would be quiet: and by the enemy he means here Nebuzaradan the captain of Nebuchadnezzar, who gave Jeremiah the choice either to remain in his country or to go where he would; or by the enemy he means the Jews, who would later know Jeremiah's faithfulness, and therefore favour him.
