Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 48:7

_ _ thy works — namely, fortifications built by thy work. Moab was famous for its fortresses (Jeremiah 48:18). The antithesis is to Jeremiah 48:6, “Be ... in the wilderness,” where there are no fortified cities.

_ _ thou ... also — like the rest of the surrounding peoples, Judah, etc.

_ _ Chemosh — the tutelary god of Moab (Numbers 21:29; Judges 11:24; 1 Kings 11:7; 2 Kings 23:13). When a people were vanquished, their gods also were taken away by the victors (Jeremiah 43:12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 48:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 48:7

Trusted — In thy idols. Chemosh — Chemosh was their principal idol.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 48:7

For because thou hast trusted in thy (f) works and in thy treasures, thou also shalt be taken: and (g) Chemosh shall go forth into captivity [with] his priests and his princes together.

(f) That is, the idols which are the works your hands. Some read, in your possessions, for so the word may signify as in (1 Samuel 25:2).

(g) Both your great idol and his maintainers will be led away captives so that they will then know that it is in vain to look for help at idols, (Isaiah 15:2).
