4 Now Jeremiah was free to come and go among the people, for he had not yet been put in prison.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Jeremiah 37:4

Commentary on Jeremiah 37:1-10

(Read Jeremiah 37:1-10)

Numbers witness the fatal effects of other men's sins, yet heedlessly step into their places, and follow the same destructive course. When in distress, we ought to desire the prayers of ministers and Christian friends. And it is common for those to desire to be prayed for, who will not be advised; yet sinners are often hardened by a pause in judgments. But if God help us not, no creature can. Whatever instruments God has determined to use, they shall do the work, though they seem unlikely.
