Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 46:7

_ _ as a flood — (Jeremiah 47:2; Isaiah 8:7, Isaiah 8:8; Daniel 11:22). The figure is appropriate in addressing Egyptians, as the Nile, their great river, yearly overspreads their lands with a turbid, muddy flood. So their army, swelling with arrogance, shall overspread the region south of Euphrates; but it, like the Nile, shall retreat as fast as it advanced.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
