The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of
Not only in the city of Jerusalem, but in the whole land of Judea. This prophecy concerns them all; their repentance and reformation, to which they are exhorted; or their invasion, desolation, and captivity, with which they are threatened. Before the prophet was sent to the king of Judah only, ( Jeremiah 22:1 ) ; now to all the people: in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah;
in the latter part of the third, and beginning of the fourth year of his reign; see ( Daniel 1:1 ) ; this [was] the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon:
in which he began to reign with his father, for he reigned two years with him; who is the Nabopolassar of Ptolemy. This was in the year of the world 3397, and before Christ 607, according to Bishop Usher F6.
