Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 30:5

_ _ We have heard ... trembling — God introduces the Jews speaking that which they will be reduced to at last in spite of their stubbornness. Threat and promise are combined: the former briefly; namely, the misery of the Jews in the Babylonian captivity down to their “trembling” and “fear” arising from the approach of the Medo-Persian army of Cyrus against Babylon; the promise is more fully dwelt on; namely, their “trembling” will issue in a deliverance as speedy as is the transition from a woman’s labor pangs to her joy at giving birth to a child (Jeremiah 30:6).

Jeremiah 30:5

For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a (b) voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.

(b) He shows that before this deliverance will come, the Chaldeans would be extremely afflicted by their enemies, and that they would be in such perplexity and sorrow as a woman in her travail as (Isaiah 13:8).
