Jeremiah 52:29 Meaning and Commentary

Jeremiah 52:29

In the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar
Said to be the nineteenth, ( Jeremiah 52:12 ) ; it was at the end of the eighteenth, and the beginning of the nineteenth, as Kimchi; or this was before the taking of the city, when he raised the siege, and departed to meet the king of Egypt, at which time he might carry captive many, as here said: he carried away captive from Jerusalem, eight hundred thirty and two
which is more likely to be then done than at the taking of the city; when it is very probable a greater number was carried captive, which are not here taken notice of.
