Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 22:19

_ _ burial of an ass — that is, he shall have the same burial as an ass would get, namely, he shall be left a prey for beasts and birds [Jerome]. This is not formally narrated. But 2 Chronicles 36:6 states that “Nebuchadnezzar bound him in fetters to carry him to Babylon”; his treatment there is nowhere mentioned. The prophecy here, and in Jeremiah 36:30, harmonizes these two facts. He was slain by Nebuchadnezzar, who changed his purpose of taking him to Babylon, on the way thither, and left him unburied outside Jerusalem. 2 Kings 24:6, “Jehoiakim slept with his fathers,” does not contradict this; it simply expresses his being gathered to his fathers by death, not his being buried with his fathers (Psalms 49:19). The two phrases are found together, as expressing two distinct ideas (2 Kings 15:38; 2 Kings 16:20).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 22:10-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 22:19

He shall be (m) buried with the burial of a donkey, drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.

(m) Not honourably among his fathers, but as carrion are cast in a hole, because their stink should not infect, read (1 Kings 14:10). Josephus writes that the enemy slew him in the city and commanded him to be cast before the walls unburied, see (Jeremiah 36:30).
