Jeremiah 2:15

_ _ lions — the Babylonian princes (Jeremiah 4:7; compare Amos 3:4). The disaster from the Babylonians in the fourth year of Jehoiakim’s reign, and again three years later when, relying on Egypt, he revolted from Nebuchadnezzar, is here referred to (Jeremiah 46:2; 2 Kings 24:1, 2 Kings 24:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 2:14-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Lions — Understand the Assyrians, Babylonians, and Egyptians, called lions from their fierceness, and young from their strength. Yelled — Noting the terrible voice that the lion puts forth, either in seizing the prey, or devouring it.
