Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 26:8

_ _ priests — The captain (or prefect) of the temple had the power of apprehending offenders in the temple with the sanction of the priests.

_ _ prophets — the false prophets. The charge against Jeremiah was that of uttering falsehood in Jehovah’s name, an act punishable with death (Deuteronomy 18:20). His prophecy against the temple and city (Jeremiah 26:11) might speciously be represented as contradicting God’s own words (Psalms 132:14). Compare the similar charge against Stephen (Acts 6:13, Acts 6:14).
