Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 29:11

_ _ I knowI alone; not the false prophets who know nothing of My purposes, though they pretend to know.

_ _ thoughts ... I think — (Isaiah 55:9). Glancing at the Jews who had no “thoughts of peace,” but only of “evil” (misfortune), because they could not conceive how deliverance could come to them. The moral malady of man is twofold — at one time vain confidence; then, when that is disappointed, despair. So the Jews first laughed at God’s threats, confident that they should speedily return; then, when cast down from that confidence, they sank in inconsolable despondency.

_ _ expected end — literally, “end and expectation,” that is, an end, and that such an end as you wish for. Two nouns joined by “and,” standing for a noun and adjective. So in Jeremiah 36:27, “the roll and the words,” that is, the roll of words; Genesis 3:16, “sorrow and conception,” that is, sorrow in conception. Compare Proverbs 23:18, where, as here “end” means “a happy issue.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 29:8-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 29:11

To give — This deliverance will not depend upon your merits, but upon my own mercy, and kind thoughts and purposes I have for the seed of Abraham my servant, and I am resolved in my own thoughts what to do, I intend not the blotting out of the name of Israel from the earth, but to give such an end to their trouble as themselves expect and desire.
