Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 29:24-32.


Jeremiah 29:25

_ _ in thy name — without sanction of “the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,” which words stand in antithesis to “thy name” (John 5:43).

_ _ Zephaniah — the second priest, or substitute (Sagan) of the high priest. He was one of those sent to consult Jeremiah by Zedekiah (Jeremiah 21:1). Slain by Nebuchadnezzar at the capture of Jerusalem (2 Kings 25:18-21). Zephaniah was in particular addressed, as being likely to take up against Jeremiah the prophet’s prediction against his brother Zedekiah at Babylon (Jeremiah 29:21). Zephaniah was to read it to the priests, and in the presence of all the people, in the temple.
