Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 52:25

_ _ seven men — but in 2 Kings 25:19 it is “five.” Perhaps two were less illustrious persons and are therefore omitted.

_ _ principal scribe of the host — (Isaiah 33:18). His office was to preside over the levy and enroll recruits. Rawlinson observes that the Assyrian records are free from the exaggerated expressions found in the Egyptian. A minute account was taken of the spoil. Two “scribes of the host” are seen in every bas-relief, writing down the various objects brought to them: the heads of the slain, the prisoners, cattle, sheep, etc.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 52:24-30.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 52:25

He took also out of the city an eunuch, who had the charge of the men of war; and (l) seven men of them that were near the king's person, who were found in the city; and the principal scribe of the host, who mustered the people of the land; and sixty men of the people of the land, that were found in the midst of the city.

(l) In (2 Kings 25:19) is read but of five: those were the most excellent and the other two, which were not so noble are not there mentioned with them.
