Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 38:10

_ _ with theeHebrew, “in thine hand,” that is, at “thy disposal” (1 Samuel 16:2). “From hence,” that is, from the gate of Benjamin where the king was sitting (Jeremiah 38:7).

_ _ thirty men — not merely to draw up Jeremiah, but to guard Ebed-melech against any opposition on the part of the princes (Jeremiah 38:1-4), in executing the king’s command. Ebed-melech was rewarded for his faith, love, and courage, exhibited at a time when he might well fear the wrath of the princes, to which even the king had to yield (Jeremiah 39:16-18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 38:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 38:10

Thirty men — Probably the king commanded Ebed — melech to take thirty men to guard him against any opposition.
