Jeremiah 34:5


You will die a peaceful death. They will burn incense at your burial just as they did at the burial of your ancestors, the former kings who preceded you. 1  They will mourn for you, saying, “Poor, poor master!” 2  Indeed, you have my own word on this. 3  I, the Lord, affirm it!’” 4

NET © Notes

tn Heb “And like the burning [of incense] for your fathers, the former kings who were before you, so will they burn [incense] for you.” The sentence has been reversed for easier style and the technical use of the terms interpreted.

sn For the custom referred to compare 2 Chr 16:14; 21:19.

sn The intent of this oracle may have been to contrast the fate of Zedekiah with that of Jehoiakim who was apparently executed, went unmourned, and was left unburied (contrast Jer 22:18-19).

tn Heb “For [or Indeed] I myself have spoken [this] word.”

tn Heb “Oracle of the Lord.”
