    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 13:18

    Say unto the king and to the queen - Probably Jeconiah and his mother, under whose tutelage, being young when he began to reign, he was left, as is very likely.

    Sit down - Show that ye have humbled yourselves; for your state will be destroyed, and your glorious crown taken from your heads.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 13:18

    The queen - i. e., "the queen-mother:" the word signifies literally "the great lady." The king's mother took precedence of his wives.

    Sit down - The usual position of slaves.

    For your principalities ... - Rather, "for the ornaments of your heads, even the crown of your majesty, shall come down."
