Jeremiah 36:15

Jeremiah 36:15

And they said unto him, sit down now
Or, "pray sit down" {q}; they received him very courteously, and treated him with great humanity, and showed much respect to him, in beseeching him to sit down by them: and read it in our ears;
as he had done in the ears of the people, with an audible voice, clearly and distinctly, that they might be able to hear it, so as to understand it: so Baruch read [it] in their ears;
without any fear or dread, though in the king's palace, and before an assembly of princes; nor did he excuse himself on account of weariness, having just read it to the people; or upbraid the princes with not being in the temple, where they might have heard it.
