Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 4:29

_ _ whole city — Jerusalem: to it the inhabitants of the country had fled for refuge; but when it, too, is likely to fall, they flee out of it to hide in the “thickets.” Henderson translates, “every city.”

_ _ noise — The mere noise of the hostile horsemen shall put you to flight.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
