    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 17:26

    The reward for keeping the Sabbath day holy consists in three things;

    (1) in great national prosperity,

    (2) in the lasting welfare of Jerusalem, and

    (3) in the wealth and piety of the people generally, indicated by their numerous sacrifices.

    Bringing sacrifices of praise - Rather, "bringing praise." This clause covers all that precedes.

    The verse is interesting as specifying the exact limits of the dominions of the Davidic kings, now confined to Judah and Benjamin. These two tribes are divided according to their physical conformation into

    (1) the Shefelah, or low country lying between the mountains and the Mediterranean;

    (2) the mountain which formed the central region, extending to the wilderness of Judah, on the Dead Sea; and

    (3) the Negeb, or arid region, which lay to the south of Judah.
