Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 48:27

_ _ (Zephaniah 2:8).

_ _ a derision — The Hebrew has the article: referring to Jeremiah 48:26, “Was not Israel (the whole nation) the object of derision to thee?” Therefore, Moab is to suffer as formerly for its exultation over the calamity (2 Kings 17:6) of the ten tribes under the Assyrian Shalmaneser (Isaiah 15:1-16:14), so now for its exultation over the fall of Judah, under the Chaldean Nebuchadnezzar. God takes up His people’s cause as His own (Obadiah 1:10-13).

_ _ was he ... among thieves — (Jeremiah 2:26). Proverbial. What did Israel do to deserve such derision? Was he detected in theft, that thou didst so exult over him in speaking of him? Though guilty before God, Israel was guiltless towards thee.

_ _ since — “since ever” thou didst begin speaking of him.

_ _ skippedst for joy — at Israel’s calamity [Calvin]; or, “thou didst shake thy head” in “derision” [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary
