Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 45:3

_ _ Thou didst say, etc. — Jeremiah does not spare his disciple, but unveils his fault, namely, fear for his life by reason of the suspicions which he incurred in the eyes of his countrymen (compare Jeremiah 36:17), as if he was in sympathy with the Chaldeans (Jeremiah 43:3), and instigator of Jeremiah; also ingratitude in speaking of his “grief,” etc., whereas he ought to deem himself highly blessed in being employed by God to record Jeremiah’s prophecies.

_ _ added — rescued from the peril of my first writing (Jeremiah 36:26). I am again involved in a similar peril. He upbraids God as dealing harshly with him.

_ _ I fainted — rather, “I am weary.”

_ _ no rest — no quiet resting-place.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 45:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 45:3

I find no rest — Upon Baruch's reading the prophecies both he and Jeremiah were advised to hide themselves. This probably disturbed Baruch, and made him lament his condition.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 45:3

Thou didst say, Woe is me now! for the LORD hath added grief to my sorrow; I (c) fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.

(c) Baruch moved with an inconsiderate zeal for Jeremiah's imprisonment, but chiefly for the destruction of the people and the temple makes this lamentation, as in (Psalms 6:6).
