Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 33:16

_ _ Jerusalem — In Jeremiah 23:6, instead of this, it is “Israel.” “The name” in the Hebrew has here to be supplied from that passage; and for “he” (Messiah, the antitypical “Israel”), the antecedent there (Isaiah 49:3), we have “she” here, that is, Jerusalem. She is called by the same name as Messiah, “The Lord Our Righteousness,” by virtue of the mystical oneness between her (as the literal representative of the spiritual Church) and her Lord and Husband. Thus, whatever belongs to the Head belongs also to the members (Ephesians 5:30, Ephesians 5:32). Hence, the Church is called “Christ” (Romans 16:7; 1 Corinthians 12:12). The Church hereby professes to draw all her righteousness from Christ (Isaiah 45:24, Isaiah 45:25). It is for the sake of Jerusalem, literal and spiritual, that God the Father gives this name (Jehovah, Tsidkenu, “The Lord our Righteousness”) to Christ.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 33:16

Saved — It is the opinion of some that a spiritual salvation and security is promised under these expressions, but by the most and best interpreters, a temporal salvation. This was typical of that spiritual and eternal salvation which is promised to the true Israel of God; as their rest in Canaan typified that rest which remaineth for the people of God. The Lord our righteousness — There is no such name any where given, either to the Jewish or Christian church, as the Lord our righteousness, but the full import of that name is spoken of Christ, Isaiah 45:23, which text is applied to Christ, Romans 14:11; Philippians 2:10.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell in safety: and this [is the name] by which (m) she shall be called, The LORD our (n) righteousness.

(m) That is, Christ that will call his Church.

(n) That is, Christ is our Lord God, our righteousness, sanctification and redemption, (1 Corinthians 1:30).
