Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 39:14

_ _ Gedaliah — son of Ahikam, the former supporter of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 26:24). Gedaliah was the chief of the deserters to the Chaldeans, and was set over the remnant in Judea as one likely to remain faithful to Nebuchadnezzar. His residence was at Mizpah (Jeremiah 40:5).

_ _ home — the house of Gedaliah, wherein Jeremiah might remain as in a safe asylum. As in Jeremiah 40:1 Jeremiah is represented as “bound in chains” when he came to Ramah among the captives to be carried to Babylon, this release of Jeremiah is thought by Maurer to be distinct from that in Jeremiah 40:5, Jeremiah 40:6. But he seems first to have been released from the court of the prison and to have been taken to Ramah, still in chains, and then committed in freedom to Gedaliah.

_ _ dwelt among the people — that is, was made free.
