NET © Notes

tn Heb “All the officials came to Jeremiah and questioned him.”

tn Heb “And he reported to them according to all these words which the king had commanded.”

tn Heb “And they were silent from him because the word/matter [i.e., the conversation between Jeremiah and the king] had not been heard.” According to BDB 578 s.v. מִן 1.a the preposition “from” is significant in this construction, implying a verb of motion. I.e., “they were [fell] silent [and turned away] from him.”
