Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 48:10

_ _ work of ... Lord — the divinely appointed utter devastation of Moab. To represent how entirely this is God’s will, a curse is pronounced on the Chaldeans, the instrument, if they do it negligently (Margin) or by halves (Judges 5:23); compare Saul’s sin as to Amalek (1 Samuel 15:3, 1 Samuel 15:9), and Ahab’s as to Syria (1 Kings 20:42).

Jeremiah 48:10

(h) Cursed [be] he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed [be] he that keepeth back his sword from blood.

(h) He shows that God would punish the Chaldeans if they did not destroy the Egyptians, and that with a courage, and calls this executing of his vengeance against his enemies, his work though the Chaldeans sought another end, (Isaiah 10:11).
