Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 27:9

_ _ Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying — (Zechariah 11:12, Zechariah 11:13). Never was a complicated prophecy, otherwise hopelessly dark, more marvelously fulfilled. Various conjectures have been formed to account for Matthew’s ascribing to Jeremiah a prophecy found in the book of Zechariah. But since with this book he was plainly familiar, having quoted one of its most remarkable prophecies of Christ but a few chapters before (Matthew 21:4, Matthew 21:5), the question is one more of critical interest than real importance. Perhaps the true explanation is the following, from Lightfoot: “Jeremiah of old had the first place among the prophets, and hereby he comes to be mentioned above all the rest in Matthew 16:14; because he stood first in the volume of the prophets (as he proves from the learned David Kimchi) therefore he is first named. When, therefore, Matthew produceth a text of Zechariah under the name of Jeremy, he only cites the words of the volume of the prophets under his name who stood first in the volume of the prophets. Of which sort is that also of our Savior (Luke 24:41), ‘All things must be fulfilled which are written of Me in the Law, and the Prophets, and the Psalms,’ or the Book of Hagiographa, in which the Psalms were placed first.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 27:9

Then was fulfilled — What was figuratively represented of old, was now really accomplished. What was spoken by the prophet — The word Jeremy, which was added to the text in latter copies, and thence received into many translations, is evidently a mistake: for he who spoke what St. Matthew here cites (or rather paraphrases) was not Jeremy, but Zechariah. Zechariah 11:12.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 27:9

Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by (e) Jeremy the prophet, saying, (f) And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

(e) As this prophecy is found in (Zechariah 11:12) it cannot be denied that Jeremy's name slipped into the text either through the fault of the Scribe, or by someone else's ignorance: it may also be that it came out of the margin by means of the abbreviation on one of the letters, the one being "yod" and the other being "zayin", which are very similar: But in the Syrian text the Prophet's name is not written down at all.

(f) The evangelist does not follow the prophet's words, but instead he follows the prophet's meaning, which he shows to have been fulfilled.

Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
Jeremy:
The words here quoted are not found in Jeremiah, but in Zechariah; and a variety of conjectures have been formed, in order to reconcile this discrepancy. The most probable opinion seems to be, that the name of the prophet was originally omitted by the Evangelist, and that the name of Jeremiah was added by some subsequent copyist. It is omitted in two manuscripts of the twelfth century, in the Syriac, later Persic, two of the Itala, and in some other Latin copies; and what renders it highly probable that the original reading was δια [Strong's G1223], του [Strong's G5120], προφητον, by the prophet, is, that Matthew frequently omits the name of the prophet in his quotations. See note on
