Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 46:13-26.

Jeremiah 46:15

_ _ thy valiant men — manuscripts, the Septuagint, and Vulgate read, “thy valiant one,” Apis, the bull-shaped Egyptian idol worshipped at Noph or Memphis. The contrast thus is between the palpable impotence of the idol and the might attributed to it by the worshippers. The Hebrew term, “strong,” or “valiant,” is applied to bulls (Psalms 22:12). Cambyses in his invasion of Egypt destroyed the sacred bull.

_ _ drive them — (Compare Jeremiah 46:5). The Hebrew word is used of a sweeping rain (Proverbs 28:3).
