Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 35:6

_ _ Jonadab ... our father — that is, forefather and director, three hundred years before (2 Kings 10:15). They were called Rechabites, not Jonadabites, having received their name from Rechab the father, previously to their adopting the injunctions of Jonadab his son. This case affords no justification for slavish deference to the religious opinions of the Christian fathers: for Jonadab’s injunction only affected matters of the present life; moreover, it was not binding on their consciences, for they deemed it not unlawful to go to Jerusalem in the invasion (Jeremiah 35:11). What is praised here is not the father’s injunction, but the obedience of the sons [Calvin].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 35:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 35:6

Jonadab — Jonadab of whom we read, 2 Kings 10:15, was the father, that is the progenitor of the Rechabites, at three hundred years distance.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 35:6

But they said, We will drink no wine: for (e) Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, [neither ye], nor your sons for ever:

(e) Whom the king of Israel favoured for his zeal, (2 Kings 10:15).

(f) Teaching them by this to flee all opportunity for intemperancy, ambition and greed and that they might know that they were strangers in the earth, and be ready to depart at all opportunity.

2 Kings 10:15 And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab [coming] to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart [is] with thy heart?

, etc.) had probably practised these rules himself; and having trained up his children to habits of abstemiousness, he enjoined them and their posterity to adhere to them. In these regulations he seems to have had no religious, but merely a prudential view, as is intimated in the reason annexed to them "that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers." And this would be the natural consequence of observing these rules; for their temperate mode of living would very much contribute to preserve health and prolong life; and they would avoid giving umbrage, or exciting the jealousy or envy of the Jews, who might have been provoked, by their engaging and succeeding in the principal business in which they themselves were engaged, agriculture and vine-dressing to expel them their country; by which they would have been deprived of the religious advantages they enjoyed.
