1 a To wit, of the captiuitie of Jeconiah or of the reigne of Zedekiah. Of the order of these prophecies and how the for ther some time standeth after the latter, read {Jere. 27,1}

7 e When thei felt their hurt, thei wolde stay no more vpon thee, but stode vpon their fete and put, their trust in others.

9 f Thus God can not suffer that man shulde arrogat any thing to him self, or put his trust in any thing saue in him alone.

13 ! The Lord promiseth that he wil restore Egypt after fourtie yeres.

14 g Meaning, that thei shuld not haue ful dominion, but be vnder the Persians, Grecians and Romains, and the cause is, that the Israelites shulde no more put their trust in them, but learne to depend on God.

16 h Lest I shulde by this meanes punish their sinnes.

18 k He toke great paines at the siege of Tyrus and his armie was sore handled.

18 l Signifying that Nebuchadnezzar had more paines then profite, by the taking of Tyrus.

18 ! Egypt is the rewarde of King Nebuchadnezzar for the labour, which he toke against Tyrus.
