    Then Zedekiah - the court of the prison - Was contiguous to the king's house, where the prisoners could readily see their friends.

    Give him daily a piece of bread out of the bakers' street - From the public stores; which he received till all the provisions were spent.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 37:21

    The prison - the watch (marginal reference).

    Piece - literally, a circle, i. e., a round cake.

    The bakers' street - It is usual in oriental towns for each trade to have a special place set apart for it. Compare Acts 10:6.
