Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 46:13-26.


Jeremiah 46:16

_ _ He — Jehovah.

_ _ made many to fall — literally, “multiplied the faller,” that is, fallers.

_ _ one fell upon another — (Jeremiah 46:6, Jeremiah 46:12): even before the enemy strikes them (Leviticus 26:37).

_ _ let us go again to our own people — the language of the confederates and mercenaries, exhorting one another to desert the Egyptian standard, and return to their respective homes (Jeremiah 46:9, Jeremiah 46:21).

_ _ from the oppressing sword — from the cruel sword, namely, of the Chaldeans (compare Jeremiah 25:38).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Leviticus 26:36-37 And upon them that are left [alive] of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth. ... And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.

they said:

Jeremiah 46:21 Also her hired men [are] in the midst of her like fatted bullocks; for they also are turned back, [and] are fled away together: they did not stand, because the day of their calamity was come upon them, [and] the time of their visitation.
Jeremiah 51:9 We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up [even] to the skies.
