Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 42:10

_ _ If ye ... abide — namely, under the Babylonian authority, to which God hath appointed that all should be subject (Daniel 2:37, Daniel 2:38). To resist was to resist God.

_ _ build ... plant — metaphor for, I will firmly establish you (Jeremiah 24:6).

_ _ I repent ... of the evil — (Jeremiah 18:8; Deuteronomy 32:36). I am satisfied with the punishment I have inflicted on you, if only you add not a new offense [Grotius]. God is said to “repent,” when He alters His outward ways of dealing.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 42:7-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 42:10

I repent — I am satisfied with the punishment your nation hath undergone, and as to the remainder, will change the course of my providence.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(d) See Jeremiah 18:8
