Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 26:19

_ _ Hezekiah, so far from killing him, was led “to fear the Lord,” and pray for remission of the sentence against Judah (2 Chronicles 32:26).

_ _ Lord repented — (Exodus 32:14; 2 Samuel 24:16).

_ _ Thus — if we kill Jeremiah.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
