Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible

Jeremiah 45

Verses 1-5


Baritch’s Appendix to the Roll of Jeremiah 36

Baruch, a man of social position (see Intro.), seems to have expected either important office in the state or more probably the gift of prophecy. On the occasion of his writing of the roll at Jeremiah’s dictation, the prophet warns him that his ambition is not to be gratified.

3. Sorrow] RV ’pain ’at the sins of his countrymen. The added ’grief was caused by the predictions of punishment.’

5. But thy life, etc.] Baruch’s life should be preserved amidst all perils.
