Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 22:13

_ _ Not only did Jehoiakim tax the people (2 Kings 23:35) for Pharaoh’s tribute, but also took their forced labor, without pay, for building a splendid palace; in violation of Leviticus 19:13; Deuteronomy 24:14, Deuteronomy 24:15. Compare Micah 3:10; Habakkuk 2:9; James 5:4. God will repay in justice those who will not in justice pay those whom they employ.
