Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 41:7

_ _ and cast them into ... pit — He had not killed them in the pit (compare Jeremiah 41:9); these words are therefore rightly supplied in English Version.

_ _ the pit — the pit or cistern made by Asa to guard against a want of water when Baasha was about to besiege the city (Jeremiah 41:9; 1 Kings 15:22). The trench or fosse round the city [Grotius]. Ishmael’s motive for the murder seems to have been a suspicion that they were coming to live under Gedaliah.
