Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 39:6

_ _ slew ... sons ... before his eyes — previous to his eyes being “put out” (Jeremiah 39:7); literally, “dug out.” The Assyrian sculptures depict the delight with which the kings struck out, often with their own hands, the eyes of captive princes. This passage reconciles Jeremiah 32:4, “his eyes shall behold his eyes”; with Ezekiel 12:13, “he shall not see Babylon, though he shall die there.”

_ _ slew all ... nobles — (Jeremiah 27:20).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
