Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 1:18

_ _ defenced city, etc. — that is, I will give thee strength which no power of thine enemies shall overcome (Jeremiah 6:27; Jeremiah 15:20; Isaiah 50:7; Isaiah 54:17; Luke 21:15; Acts 6:10).

_ _ wallsplural, to express the abundant strength to be given him. Deuteronomy Rossi’s manuscripts read singular, “wall.”

_ _ people of the land — the general masses, as distinguished from the princes and priests.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 1:11-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 1:18

This whole land — All its inhabitants in general; intimating, that though men of all degrees should set themselves against him, yet God would support him against their all, and would carry him thro' his work, tho' his troubles would not be only great, but long; passing thro' several king's reigns.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 1:18

For, behold, I have made thee this day a fortified city, and an (r) iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against her princes, against her priests, and against the people of the land.

(r) Signifying on the one hand that the more that Satan and the world rage against God's ministers, the more present will he be to help them, (Joshua 1:5; Hebrews 13:5) and on the other hand, that they are utterly unfit to serve God in his Church, who are afraid and do not resist wickedness, whatever danger depend on it, (Isaiah 50:7; Ezekiel 3:8).
