Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 44:28

_ _ small number — (see on Jeremiah 44:14; and Jeremiah 42:17; Isaiah 27:13); compare “all-consumed” (Jeremiah 44:27). A band easily counted, whereas they were expecting to return triumphantly in large numbers.

_ _ shall know — most of them experimentally, and to their cost.

_ _ whose words ... mine, or theirsHebrew, “that from Me and them.” Jehovah’s words are His threats of destruction to the Jews; theirs, the assertion that they expected all goods from their gods (Jeremiah 44:17), etc. “Mine”; by which I predict ruin to them. “Theirs”; by which they give themselves free scope in iniquity.

_ _ shall stand — (Psalms 33:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Jeremiah 44:28

Yet a small number that escape the sword (o) shall return from the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that have gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall stand, mine, or theirs.

(o) We see therefore that God has a perpetual care over his, wherever they are scattered: for though they are but two or three, yet he will deliver them when he destroys his enemies.
