Jeremiah 37:16

Jeremiah 37:16

When Jeremiah was entered into the dungeon
Or, "into the house of the pit" F12; a dungeon, like a pit or ditch, dark, dirty, or dismal: and into the cabins;
or "cells" F13; into a place more inward than the cells, as the Targum; into the innermost and worst part in all the prison, where a man could not well lie, sit, nor stand: and Jeremiah had remained there many days;
in this very uncomfortable condition; very probably till the Chaldean army returned to Jerusalem, as he foretold it should.
