(10) When the princes of Judah heard these things . . .--The princes appear not to have been present when the words were spoken. The report was carried to them as they sat in council with the king, and they came down to the Temple and took their place, to watch and listen what would come next. They went apparently by what was known as the king's entry into the Temple (2Kings 16:18), the high gate which had been built by Jotham (2Chronicles 27:3), from which they could command a view of the crowds in the Temple court. (See Note on Jeremiah 22:2). One of them, in all probability, was Ahikam, the son of Shaphan (Jeremiah 26:24). As in Jeremiah 36:19; Jeremiah 36:25, the princes are less bitterly hostile than the priests. . . . Verse 10. - The princes. The term will include the members of the various branches of the royal family, who acted as judges (see on Jeremiah 21:12), and the "elders," or heads of families (see ver. 17). Without the presence of the former, Jeremiah could only have had a mock-trial. Came up, etc. (see on Jeremiah 22:1). Of the Lord's house; better simply, of the Lord. The gate is the same which is referred at Jeremiah 20:2.
