Jeremiah 41:8

_ _ treasures — It was customary to hide grain in cavities underground in troubled times. “We have treasures,” which we will give, if our lives be spared.

_ _ slew ... not — (Proverbs 13:8). Ishmael’s avarice and needs overcame his cruelty.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 41:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 41:8

He forebare — His covetousness prevailed over his cruelty.

These "treasures hid in the field" were doubtless laid up in subterranean pits, similar to the mattamores in Barbary, in which, Dr. Shaw informs us, they deposit the grain when winnowed; two or three hundred of them being sometimes together, and the smallest holding four hundred bushels. The same mode of keeping corn prevails in Syria and the Holy Land.
