(1) The Difficulty which Expositors have thought to be in these Words, when compared with AEF. 1. 18. will be removed, if we suppose that what is there recorded, is a fart her Account of what happened to Judas after he had hanged himself. And then the Sense of both Places together will be, that Judas, having fastned the Rope, threw himself from the Place where he stood, and to hanged himself. After which, either the Rope, or that to which he fastned it, breaking, he fell down headlang, and with the Force of the Fall he burst alunder, and all his Bowels gushed out.

(2) These Words are not in Jeremy, but in Zachary. To remove this Difficulty, some think that Zachary was likewise called Jeremy ; for it was common among the Jews for the same Person to have two, and sometimes three Names. See the Note on Mat. 10.3. Others suppose that St.Matthemo cites them as from Jeremy, because his Prophecy stood first in the Volume of Prophets, and so any Passage quoted out of that Volume might go by his Naine. The Learned may meet with a fuller Account in Surex huius, on the Texts cited from the Old Testemint in the New,
