Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Habakkuk 2:16

_ _ art filled — now that thou art fallen. “Thou art filled” indeed (though so insatiable), but it is “with shame.”

_ _ shame for glory — instead of thy former glory (Hosea 4:7).

_ _ drink thou also — The cup of sorrow is now in thy turn to pass to thee (Jeremiah 25:15-17; Lamentations 4:21).

_ _ thy foreskin — expressing in Hebrew feeling the most utter contempt. So of Goliath (1 Samuel 17:36). It is not merely thy “nakedness,” as in Habakkuk 2:15, that shall be “uncovered,” but the foreskin, the badge of thy being an uncircumcised alien from God. The same shall be done to thee, as thou didst to others, and worse.

_ _ cup ... shall be turned unto thee — literally, “shall turn itself,” namely, from the nations whom thou hast made to drink it. “Thou shalt drink it all, so that it may be turned as being drained” [Grotius].

_ _ shameful spewing — that is, vomiting; namely, that of the king of Babylon, compelled to disgorge the spoil he had swallowed. It expresses also the ignominious state of Babylon in its calamity (Jeremiah 25:27). “Be drunken, spew, and fall.” Less appropriately it is explained of the foe spewing in the face of the Babylonian king.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Habakkuk 2:15-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Habakkuk 2:16

Thou — O king of Babylon. Shall be turned — They turned the cup of pleasure about, God will carry the cup of indignation about also, and make them drink deep of it. Shameful spewing — Thou shalt be as much loathed as a shameful drunkard is in his vomit.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Habakkuk 2:16

Thou art filled with shame (n) for glory: drink thou also, and let thy shame come upon thee: the cup of the LORD'S right hand shall be turned to thee, and utter shame [shall be] on thy glory.

(n) Whereas you thought to have the glory of these your doings, they will turn to your shame: for you will drink of the same cup with others in your turn.
