Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 49:2

_ _ Rabbah — “the great,” metropolis of Ammon (2 Samuel 12:26-30). Its destruction is foretold also in Ezekiel 25:5; Amos 1:14, Amos 1:15.

_ _ her daughters — the towns and villages, dependencies of the metropolis (Joshua 15:45).

_ _ shall ... be heir — shall possess those who possessed him. The full accomplishment of this is still future; partially fulfilled under the Maccabees (1 Maccabees 5:6).
