Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 49:11

_ _ Thy fatherless and widows must rest their hope in God alone, as none of the adult males shall be left alive, so desperate will be the affairs of Edom. The verse also, besides this threat, implies a promise of mercy to Esau in God’s good time, as there was to Moab and Ammon (Jeremiah 49:6; Jeremiah 48:47); the extinction of the adult males is the prominent idea (compare Jeremiah 49:12).
