Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 44:26

_ _ I have swornI, too have made a vow which I will fulfil. Since ye will not hear Me speaking and warning, hear Me swearing.

_ _ by my great name — that is, by Myself (Genesis 22:16), the greatest by whom God can swear (Hebrews 6:13, Hebrews 6:14).

_ _ my name shall no more be named — The Jews, heretofore, amidst all their idolatry, had retained the form of appeal to the name of God and the law, the distinctive glory of their nation; God will allow this no more (Ezekiel 20:39): there shall be none left there to profane His name thus any more.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 44:20-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 44:26

The Lord liveth — There shall not any be left alive of the Jews that are in Egypt, to swear The Lord God liveth.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 44:26

Therefore hear ye the word of the LORD, all Judah that dwell in the land of Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by my great name, saith the LORD, that my name (n) shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, The Lord GOD liveth.

(n) This declares a horrible plague toward idolaters, seeing that God will not vouchsafe to have his Name mentioned by such as have polluted it.
