Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 52:34


52:34 All the days of his life - Here ends the history of the kingdom of Judah. I shall only observe the severe judgment of God upon this people, whose kingdom was made up of the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and half the tribe of Manasseh. In the numbering of the persons belonging to these two tribes, #Numb 1:27|,35,37, (counting half of the number of the tribe of Manasseh) we find one hundred twenty - six thousand one hundred: #Numb 26:22|,34,41, we find of them one hundred forty - eight thousand four hundred and fifty. Here, ver.#52:30|, we find no more of them carried into captivity, than four thousand and six hundred. From whence we may judge what a multitude of them were slain by the sword, by the famine, and pestilence! It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, to mock his messengers, despise his words, and misuse his prophets, 'till there be no remedy, #2Chron 36:16|.
