left in the house of the LORD
27:18 left in the house of the LORD. Many of the temple treasures had already been carried away by the Babylonians at the time Jehoiachin (same as Jeconiah or Coniah) was also taken to Babylon (II Kings 24:12-15). See note on Jeremiah 22:24. However, those that remained there at that time would also be carried to Babylon (Jeremiah 27:22) in Nebuchadnezzar’s final invasion (II Chronicles 36:18).
