Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 47:3

_ _ (Compare Jeremiah 4:29).

_ _ fathers ... not look back to ... children — Each shall think only of his own safety, not even the fathers regarding their own children. So desperate shall be the calamity that men shall divest themselves of the natural affections.

_ _ for feebleness of hands — The hands, the principal instruments of action, shall have lost all power; their whole hope shall be in their feet.
