Jeremiah 35:14


Jonadab son of Rechab ordered his descendants not to drink wine. His orders have been carried out. 1  To this day his descendants have drunk no wine because they have obeyed what their ancestor commanded them. But I 2  have spoken to you over and over again, 3  but you have not obeyed me!

NET © Notes

tn Heb “The words of Jonadab son of Rechab which he commanded his descendants not to drink wine have been carried out.” (For the construction of the accusative of subject after a passive verb illustrated here see GKC 388 §121.b.) The sentence has been broken down and made more direct to better conform to contemporary English style.

tn The vav (ו) plus the independent pronoun before the verb is intended to mark a sharp contrast. It is difficult, if not impossible to mark this in English other than “But I.”

tn On this idiom (which occurs again in the following verse) see the translator’s note on 7:13 for this idiom and compare its use in 7:13, 25; 11:7; 25:3, 4; 26:5; 29:19; 32:33; 35:14, 15; 44:9.
