Text Commentary

1And the day came when God led the people out of Babylon. 2And the Lord said to Jeremiah, Get up, both you and the people, and make your way to Jordan; and say to the people, He that is for the Lord, let him leave behind what was done in Babylon — the men who married Babylonian 1 Lit. ‘married from them’. After ‘Babylonians’ in verse 4 the text of c breaks off and concludes with a collection of historical scraps, mostly derived from 1 and 2 Esdras (LXX). wives and the women who married Babylonian 1 Lit. ‘married from them’.

And half of those who had married Babylonians 1 Lit. ‘married from them’.

And Jeremiah stood up, and Baruch, and Abimelech, and said, No one with a Babylonian partner shall enter this city. 6And they said to them, Let us then return to Babylon where we belong. 2 Lit. ‘to Babylon, to our place’. And they went away. 7But when they came to Babylon, the Babylonians came out to meet them, saying, You shall not enter our city because in your hatred for us you left secretly: you shall not return to us for that reason. For we have bound ourselves by oath, in the name of our god, not to receive either you or your children, because you left us secretly. 8And when they heard this, they turned back and came to a deserted place some distance from Jerusalem; and they built a city for themselves and called it Samaria. 9And Jeremiah sent a message to them, saying, Repent, for the angel of righteousness is coming and will lead you to your place on high.
