Jeremiah 39:13

Jeremiah 39:13

So Nebuzaradan captain of the guard sent
When he was come to Jerusalem, one of the first things he did was, he sent a messenger or messengers to the court of the prison where Jeremiah was, to bring him from thence; and this he did not alone, but with the rest of the princes, who had the same charge, and were joined in the commission with him: two of them are mentioned by name, Nebushasban Rabsaris and Nergalsharezer Rabmag;
the latter of these is manifestly one of the princes that first entered Jerusalem, at the taking of it, (See Gill on Jeremiah 39:3); and perhaps the former is the same with Sarsechim Rabsaris, as Hillerus F14 thinks, mentioned at the same time, who might have two names; unless we suppose there were two persons in the same office: and all the king of Babylon's princes:
so that great honour was done to the prophet, to have them all charged with his commission from the king; and to be sent unto, and for, by them all.
