Jeremiah 42:21

Jeremiah 42:21

And [now] I have this day declared [it] unto you
The whole will of God, and had not kept back anything from them: but ye have not obeyed the voice of the Lord your God;
or, "ye will not obey" F3; the prophet knew they would not obey the command of the Lord not to go into Egypt, either by his conversation with them during the ten days the answer of the Lord was deferred, by which he plainly saw they were determined to go into Egypt; or by their countenances and behaviour, while he was delivering the Lord's message to them; by what he observed in them, he knew what was said was not agreeable to them, and that their mind was to go into Egypt: or he had this, as others think, by divine revelation; though without that he knew the cast of this people, and what a rebellious and disobedient people they were, and had been, never obeying the voice of the Lord: nor any [thing] for which he hath sent me unto you:
not anyone particular thing respecting this present affair; nor indeed any of his prophecies had they regarded, with which he had been sent to them before.
