Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 38:26

_ _ presented — literally, “made my supplication to fall”; implying supplication with humble prostration (see on Jeremiah 36:7).

_ _ Jonathan’s house — (Jeremiah 37:15), different from Malchiah’s dungeon (Jeremiah 38:6). This statement was true, though not the whole truth; the princes had no right to the information; no sanction is given by Scripture here to Jeremiah’s representation of this being the cause of his having come to the king. Fear drove him to it. Compare Genesis 20:2, Genesis 20:12; on the other hand, 1 Samuel 16:2, 1 Samuel 16:5.

_ _ left off speaking withHebrew, “were silent from him,” that is, withdrawing from him they left him quiet (1 Samuel 7:8, Margin).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 38:26

Then thou shalt say to them, I (l) presented my supplication before the king, that he would not cause me to return to Jonathan's house, to die there.

(l) In this appears the infirmity of the prophet, who dissembled to save his life even though it was not to the denial of his doctrine or to the hurt of any.
