Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 1:15

_ _ families — the tribes or clans composing the various kingdoms of Babylon; the specification of these aggravates the picture of calamity (Jeremiah 25:9).

_ _ throne at ... gates — the usual place of administering justice. The conquering princes will set up their tribunal there (Jeremiah 39:3, Jeremiah 39:5; Jeremiah 52:9). Or the reference is to the military pavilion (Jeremiah 43:10) [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 1:11-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 1:15

The families — Those nations that were under one lord. Kingdoms — The Babylonians, and their assistants; the Medes also being in confederacy with them, whose king's daughter Nebuchadnezzar married. His throne — Their seats, pavilions or tents shall be pitched, which shall be as so many thrones. Entering — Of the gates, or way leading to them.
