Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 39:8

_ _ burned ... the houses — (Jeremiah 52:12, Jeremiah 52:13). Not immediately after the taking of the city, but in the month after, namely, the fifth month (compare Jeremiah 39:2). The delay was probably caused by the princes having to send to Riblah to know the king’s pleasure as to the city.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
