Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 26:12

_ _ Lord sent me — a valid justification against any laws alleged against him.

_ _ against ... against — rather, “concerning.” Jeremiah purposely avoids saying, “against,” which would needlessly irritate. They had used the same Hebrew word (Jeremiah 26:11), which ought to be translated “concerning,” though they meant it in the unfavorable sense. Jeremiah takes up their word in a better sense, implying that there is still room for repentance: that his prophecies aim at the real good of the city; for or concerning this house ... city [Grotius].

Jeremiah 26:12

Then Jeremiah spoke to all the princes and to all the people, saying, The LORD (h) sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that ye have heard.

(h) He both shows the cause of his doings plainly and also threatens them that nothing would help, though they should put him to death, but heap greater vengeance on their heads.
