Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 46:13-26.

Jeremiah 46:17

_ _ there — in their own country severally, the foreign soldiers (Jeremiah 46:16) cry, “Pharaoh is,” etc.

_ _ but a noise — He threatens great things, but when the need arises, he does nothing. His threats are mere “noise” (compare 1 Corinthians 13:1). Maurer translates, “is ruined,” literally (in appropriate abruptness of language), “Pharaoh, king ... ruin.” The context favors English Version. His vauntings of what he would do when the time of battle should come have proved to be empty sounds; he hath passed the time appointed (namely, for battle with the Chaldeans).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 46:13-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 46:17

Pharaoh — Hath made a great noise, but it cometh to nothing. Passed — That is, he hath passed the time himself fixed when he would cone, and fight the Chaldeans.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 46:17

They cried there, Pharaoh king of Egypt [is but] a noise; he (o) hath passed the time appointed.

(o) He derides them who blame their overthrow on lack of counsel and policy, or to fortune and not observing of time: not considering that it is God's just judgment.
