Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 48:31

_ _ I will cry ... for ... Moab — Not that it deserves pity, but the prophet’s “crying” for it vividly represents the greatness of the calamity.

_ _ Kir-heres — Kir-hareseth, in Isaiah 16:7; see on Isaiah 16:7. It means “the city of potters,” or else “the city of the sun” [Grotius]. Here “the men of Kir-heres” are substituted for “the foundations of Kir-hareseth,” in Isaiah 16:7. The change answers probably to the different bearing of the disaster under Nebuchadnezzar, as compared with that former one under Shalmaneser.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 48:14-47.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 48:31

Kir — herez — A city of Moab.
