Jeremiah 42:2 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

When those who had been carried off by Ishmael saw these captains, they were glad, since they had followed their captor merely because they were forced to do so. They all turned, and went over to Johanan; but Ishmael escaped from Johanan, with eight men, - having thus lost two in the fight with Johanan, - and went to the Ammonites.
