Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 10:22

_ _ bruit — rumor of invasion. The antithesis is between the voice of God in His prophets to whom they turned a deaf ear, and the cry of the enemy, a new teacher, whom they must hear [Calvin].

_ _ north country — Babylon (Jeremiah 1:15).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 10:17-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 10:22

Noise — Rumour, report.
