Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 48:5

_ _ going up of Luhith ... going down of Horonaim — Horonaim lay in a plain, Luhith on a height. To the latter, therefore, the Moabites would flee with “continual weeping,” as a place of safety from the Chaldeans. Literally, “Weeping shall go up upon weeping.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 48:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 48:5

Luhith — To this city the Moabites fled for sanctuary, and flying made so great an out — cry that their enemies who pursued them heard it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 48:5

For in the ascent of (d) Luhith continual weeping shall go up; for in the descent of Horonaim the enemies have heard a cry of destruction.

(d) Horonaim and Luhith were two places by which the Moabites would flee, (Isaiah 15:5).

Luhith:
Luhith is placed by Eusebius between Areopolis, or Ar, and Zoar. (See
Jeremiah 48:34 From the cry of Heshbon [even] unto Elealeh, [and even] unto Jahaz, have they uttered their voice, from Zoar [even] unto Horonaim, [as] an heifer of three years old: for the waters also of Nimrim shall be desolate.
.) It was evidently situated upon a height; as was also Horonaim, which was probably not far from Luhith.
Isaiah 15:5 My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives [shall flee] unto Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up a cry of destruction.

continual weeping:
