Jeremiah 27:7

(8) For it shall come to pass in that day . . .--Better, And it shall come. Here there comes in the ground of the hope uttered in the words "he shall be saved out of it," which keeps the prophet from sinking under the burden of his sorrow. The second and third person are strangely mingled. Jehovah speaks to Israel, "thy bonds," "thy yoke," and "his yoke" is that of the oppressor, i.e., of the Babylonian ruler, and then, the person changing, "strangers shall no more get service done for them by him" i.e., by Israel. The prophet echoes the words of Isaiah 10:27.

Verse 8. - His yoke. Not that imposed by the enemy (as Isaiah 10:22 and Isaiah 14:25 might suggest), but that suffered by Jacob. This is clear from the last clause of the verse.
