Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 37:13

_ _ ward — that is, the “guard,” or “watch.”

_ _ Hananiah — whose death Jeremiah predicted (Jeremiah 28:16). The grandson in revenge takes Jeremiah into custody on the charge of deserting (“thou fallest away,” Jeremiah 38:19; Jeremiah 52:15; 1 Samuel 29:3) to the enemy. His prophecies gave color to the charge (Jeremiah 21:9; Jeremiah 38:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
