Commentary: Once again, a king refuses to listen and trust in the Lord for salvation, instead relying on the power of other, pagan, nations. Jeremiah is imprisoned, summoned by the king, then imprisoned again because the king did not like the truth of what Jeremiah spoke. Jeremiah never falters in speaking the truth of the Lord, for which the Lord remembers him, even if Jeremiah’s salvation comes from an unexpected source: the Babylonians.
