Matthew Henry's Commentary on Jeremiah 39:12

Commentary on Jeremiah 39:11-14

(Read Jeremiah 39:11-14)

The servants of God alone are prepared for all events; and they are delivered and comforted, while the wicked suffer. They often meet with more kindness from the profane, than from hypocritical professors of godliness. The Lord will raise them up friends, do them good, and perform all his promises.
