Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 46:13-26.

Jeremiah 46:18

_ _ As the mountains Tabor and Carmel tower high above the other hills of Palestine, so Nebuchadnezzar (Jeremiah 46:26) when he comes shall prove himself superior to all his foes. Carmel forms a bold promontory jutting out into the Mediterranean. Tabor is the higher of the two; therefore it is said to be “among the mountains”; and Carmel “by the sea.

_ _ the King ... Lord of hosts — (Jeremiah 48:15); in contrast to “Pharaoh king of Egypt ... but a noise” (Jeremiah 46:17). God the true “King ... the Lord of hosts,” shall cause Nebuchadnezzar to come. Whereas Pharaoh shall not come to battle at the time appointed, notwithstanding his boasts, Nebuchadnezzar shall come according to the prediction of the King, who has all hosts in His power, however ye Egyptians may despise the prediction.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
