Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 1:14

_ _ break forth — “shall disclose itself.”

_ _ Out of the north — (Jeremiah 4:6; Jeremiah 6:1, Jeremiah 6:22; Jeremiah 10:22; Jeremiah 25:9; Ezekiel 26:7). The Chaldeans did not cast off the yoke of Assyria till several years after, under Nabopolassar, 625 b.c.; but long previously they had so increased as to threaten Assyria, which was now grown weak, and other neighboring peoples.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 1:11-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 1:14

North — From Babylon.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 1:14

Then the LORD said to me, Out of the (o) north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.

(o) Syria and Assyria were northward in respect to Jerusalem, which was the Chaldeans dominion.
