Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 10:9

_ _ Everything connected with idols is the result of human effort.

_ _ Silver spread — (See on Isaiah 30:22; see on Isaiah 40:19).

_ _ Tarshish — Tartessus, in Spain, famed for precious metals.

_ _ Uphaz — (Daniel 10:5). As the Septuagint in the Syrian Hexapla in the Margin, Theodotus, the Syrian and Chaldee versions have “Ophir,” Gesenius thinks “Uphaz” a colloquial corruption (one letter only being changed) for “Ophir.” Ophir, in Genesis 10:29, is mentioned among Arabian countries. Perhaps Malacca is the country meant, the natives of which still call their gold mines Ophirs. Heeren thinks Ophir the general name for the rich countries of the south, on the Arabian, African, and Indian coasts; just as our term, East Indies.

_ _ cunning — skilful.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 10:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 10:9

Tarshish — Is the proper name of a sea — town in Cilicia, and being a noted port, it is usually put for the ocean, and may signify any place beyond the sea. Uphaz — Probably the best gold came from thence as the best silver from Tarshish.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 10:9

Silver beaten into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold (f) from Uphaz, the work of the craftsman, and of the hands of the goldsmith: blue and purple [is] their clothing: they [are] all the work of skilful [men].

(f) Where they found the best gold; showing that they thought nothing too dear for their idols, some read Ophir as in (1 Kings 9:28).
