Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 1:13

_ _ Another vision, signifying what is the “word” about to be “performed,” and by what instrumentality.

_ _ seething — literally, “blown under”; so boiling by reason of the flame under it kept brisk by blowing. An Oriental symbol of a raging war.

_ _ toward — rather, “from the north.” Literally, “from the face of the region situated towards the north” (compare Jeremiah 1:14, Jeremiah 1:15) [Maurer]. The pot in the north rested on one side, its mouth being about to pour forth its contents southwards, namely, on Judea. Babylon, though east of Judea, was regarded by the Hebrews as north, because they appropriated the term “east” to Arabia-Deserta, stretching from Palestine to the Euphrates; or rather [Bochart], the reference here is not to the site, but to the route of the Babylonians; not being able to cross the desert, they must enter the Holy Land by the northern frontier, through Riblah in Hamath (Jeremiah 39:5; Jeremiah 52:9).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 1:11-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 1:13

Seething — Pot — I see a pot coming, meaning the Babylonian army, who would besiege Jerusalem as a fire plays round the pot, when it is to be made boil; and reduce the inhabitants to miserable extremities. Face — Or front of the pot, or furnace, the place where the fire was put in, or blowed up to make it boil. North — Indicating from whence their misery should come, namely, from Chaldea, which lay north from Jerusalem.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 1:13

And the word of the LORD came to me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a boiling (n) pot; and its face [is] toward the north.

(n) Signifying that the Chaldeans and Assyrians would be as a pot to seethe the Jews who boiled in their pleasures and lust.
