Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 37:17

_ _ secretly — Zedekiah was ashamed to be seen by his courtiers consulting Jeremiah (John 12:43; John 5:44; John 19:38).

_ _ thou shalt be delivered — Had Jeremiah consulted his earthly interests, he would have answered very differently. Contrast Jeremiah 6:14; Isaiah 30:10; Ezekiel 13:10.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 37:11-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 37:17

Is there — Hath God revealed any thing to thee, concerning the issue of the return of the Chaldean army.
