Treasury of Scripture

And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When you come to Babylon, and shall see, and shall read all these words;









(61) When thou comest to Babylon, and shalt see, and shalt read . . .--The meaning of the Hebrew would be better expressed by, thou shalt see to it and read, or see to it and read. The English version, as it is, leaves it doubtful who or what is to be seen. The verb for "read" implies reading aloud. Saraiah was to read the prophecy to those whom it concerned, probably to a chosen few among his own countrymen. The idea that it was to be read to the Babylonians is in the highest degree improbable.

Verse 61. - (Comp. 50:3; 51:26.) And shalt see, and shalt read; rather, See that thou read.
