Jeremiah 22:1-2

Context

22:1 The Lord told me, 1  “Go down 2  to the palace of the king of Judah. Give him a message from me there. 3  22:2 Say: ‘Listen, O king of Judah who follows in David’s succession. 4  You, your officials, and your subjects who pass through the gates of this palace must listen to what the Lord says. 5 

1 tn The word “me “ is not in the text. It is, however, implicit and is supplied in the translation for clarity.

2 sn The allusion here is to going down from the temple to the palace which was on a lower eminence. See 36:12 in its context.

3 tn Heb “And speak there this word:” The translation is intended to eliminate an awkward and lengthy sentence.

4 tn Heb “who sits on David’s throne.”

5 tn Heb “Hear the word of the Lord, O king of Judah who sits on the throne of David, you, and your officials and your people who pass through these gates.”
