Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 49:16

_ _ terribleness — the terror which thou didst inspire into others.

_ _ deceived thee — rendered thee proudly confident, as if none would dare to assail thee.

_ _ dwellest in ... rock — Petra, the chief of Idumea, was cut in the rocks; its ruins are very remarkable. The whole south of Idumea abounds in cave dwellings and rocks.

_ _ though ... nest ... eagle — (Job 39:27; Obadiah 1:3, Obadiah 1:4). The eagle builds its nest in the highest craggy eyry.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
