Jeremiah 13:20

_ _ from ... north — Nebuchadnezzar and his hostile army (Jeremiah 1:14; Jeremiah 6:22).

_ _ flock ... given thee — Jeremiah, amazed at the depopulation caused by Nebuchadnezzar’s forces, addresses Jerusalem (a noun of multitude, which accounts for the blending of plural and singular, Your eyes ... thee ... thy flock), and asks where is the population (Jeremiah 13:17, “flock”) which God had given her?

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 13:12-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Where — The prophet speaks to the king, or to the rulers. In the multitude of the people is the king's honour.

Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north: where [is] the (i) flock [that] was given thee, thy beautiful flock?
