So you go to the house of the LORD on a day of fasting and read to the people from the scroll the words of the LORD that you wrote as I dictated. Read them to all the people of Judah who come in from their towns.
Therefore go thou, and read in the roll, which thou hast written from my mouth, the words of the LORD in the ears of the people in the LORD'S house upon the fasting day: and also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come out of their cities.
so you are to go, and on a day of fasting in the hearing of all the people in the LORD's house you shall read the words of the LORD from the scroll that you have written at my dictation. You shall read them also in the hearing of all the men of Judah who come out of their cities.
So you go to the Temple on the next day of fasting, and read the messages from the LORD that I have had you write on this scroll. Read them so the people who are there from all over Judah will hear them.
Therefore go thou, and read in the roll, which thou
hast written from my mouth
The roll being finished, Baruch is ordered to read it, which was
the end of writing it: and since the prophet could not go
himself, he sends another in his room, to read the words of
the Lord in the ears of the people, in the Lord's
house, upon the fasting day;
the day of atonement; the great fast, which was on the tenth day
of the seventh month, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim; and so a
different time of reading from that in ( Jeremiah
36:9 ) . This was a very proper time to read it in, when the
people were fasting and humbling themselves before the Lord;
though some think this was a fast proclaimed by Jehoiakim, to
avert the vengeance threatened by the Chaldean army: and
also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come
out of their cities;
to keep the feast of tabernacles; as they did five days after the
fast, or day of atonement; and this seems to be the second
reading of the roll enjoined.
