Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 35:7

_ _ tents — (Judges 4:17).

_ _ live many days — according to the promise connected with the fifth commandment (Exodus 20:12; Ephesians 6:2, Ephesians 6:3).

_ _ strangers — They were not of the stock of Jacob, but sojourners in Israel. Types of the children of God, pilgrims on earth, looking for heaven as their home: having little to lose, so that losing times cost them little alarm; sitting loose to what they have (Hebrews 10:34; Hebrews 11:9, Hebrews 11:10, Hebrews 11:13-16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 35:1-11.

That ye may live — Jonadab cautions his sons by a thrifty, sober, laborious life, to which they had been bred, in keeping flocks, to avoid any thing which might expose them to the envy or hatred of the people amongst whom they were come to sojourn.
