Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 22:28

_ _ broken idol — Coniah was idolized once by the Jews; Jeremiah, therefore, in their person, expresses their astonishment at one from whom so much had been expected being now so utterly cast aside.

_ _ vessel ... no pleasure — (Psalms 31:12; Hosea 8:8). The answer to this is given (Romans 9:20-23; contrast 2 Timothy 2:21).

_ _ his seed — (See on Jeremiah 22:29).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 22:20-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 22:28

Is this — The prophet speaks this in the person of God, affirming that this prince, who was the idol of the people, was now become like a broken idol. A vessel — So cracked, or so tainted, that they can make no use of it.

2 Samuel 5:21 And there they left their images, and David and his men burned them.

Romans 9:21-23 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? ... And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
2 Timothy 2:20-21 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. ... If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, [and] prepared unto every good work.

his seed:

1 Chronicles 3:17-24 And the sons of Jeconiah; Assir, Salathiel his son, ... And the sons of Elioenai [were], Hodaiah, and Eliashib, and Pelaiah, and Akkub, and Johanan, and Dalaiah, and Anani, seven.
Matthew 1:12-16 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; ... And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

which:

Jeremiah 14:18 If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! and if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with famine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they know not.
