Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 48:36

_ _ (See on Isaiah 15:7; see on Isaiah 16:11).

_ _ like pipes — a plaintive instrument, therefore used at funerals and in general mourning.

_ _ riches ... gotten — literally, the abundance ... that which is over and above the necessaries of life. Grotius translates, “They who have been left remaining shall perish”; they who have not been slain by the enemy shall perish by disease and famine.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 48:14-47.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 48:36

Pipes — The prophet means such pipes as they were wont to use at funerals, and other sad occasions.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 48:36

Therefore my heart shall sound for Moab like (u) pipes, and my heart shall sound like pipes for the men of Kirheres: because the riches [that] he hath gotten have perished.

(u) Their custom was to play on flutes or instruments, heavy and grave tunes at burials and in the time of mourning, as in (Matthew 9:23).
