And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites
To the family of them, to those that were with him in the temple, and while they were there; and what he said to them, which is as follows, was by the order and direction of the Lord: thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel;
he uses the same titles, when speaking to them, as to the Jews, expressive of his sovereignty, power, and grace: because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father;
that particular command concerning not drinking wine: and kept all his precepts, and done according to all that he hath
all the rest, as well as that; though they were many, they took notice of them, and observed them; they kept them in their minds and memory, and made them the rule of their actions, and conformed to them in all respects.
