      1  Ishmael, treacherously killing Gedaliah and others,
        purposes with the residue to flee unto the Ammonites.
    11  Johanan recovers the captives, and is minded to flee into
        Egypt.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - the seventh month.
      This was the month {Tisri,} answering to the new moon of
      September, the seventh of the sacred, but the first of the
      civil year; on the third day of which the Jews keep a fast,
      in commemoration of the death of Gedaliah, to which the
      prophet Zechariah refers, ch. 19 8:19; 2 39:2; 6 52:6.  2 Ki 3 25:3,
      8, 25.  Zec 7:5; 19 8:19.

      All these were signs of deep mourning; which, though
      forbidden on funeral occasions, were customary, and perhaps
      counted allowable, on seasons of public calamity, and this
      mourning was probably on account of the destruction of
      Jerusalem.

       * Job 2:4 Ps 49:6-8 Pr 13:8 Mt 6:25; 16:26 Mr 8:36,37 Php 3:7-9
    - treasures.
      These "treasures hid in the field" were doubtless laid up in
      subterranean pits, similar to the {mattamores} in Barbary, in
      which, Dr. Shaw informs us, they deposit the grain when
      winnowed; two or three hundred of them being sometimes
      together, and the smallest holding four hundred bushels.  The
      same mode of keeping corn prevails in Syria and the Holy
      Land.
    
    
    VERSE 9 
     - the pit.
      This was probably a large reservoir for receiving rain water,
      which Asa had caused to be made in the midst of the city, in
      case of a siege.
    
    - because of Gedaliah.  or, near Gedaliah.  Heb. by the hand,
      or the side of Gedaliah.  was it.

    VERSE 17 
     - Chimham.
       * 2Sa 19:37,38
    - to go.
      As Johanan and the other princes had taken a decided part
      against Ishmael, they had no sufficient reason to fear that
      the Chaldeans would revenge on them the murder of Gedaliah;
      but perhaps Johanan was unwilling to be superseded in the
      command which he had rightly assumed, and so used his
      influence to induce the whole company to take refuge in
      Egypt; and their old attachment to the Egyptians rendered
      them more ready to concur in this ruinous measure.
