Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 49:25

_ _ city of praise — The prophet, in the person of a citizen of Damascus deploring its calamity, calls it “the city of praise,” that is, celebrated with praises everywhere for its beauty (Jeremiah 33:9; Jeremiah 51:41). “How is it possible that such a city has not been left whole — has not been spared by the foe?” Compare left, Luke 17:35, Luke 17:36. So Israel “left” standing some of the Canaanite cities (Joshua 11:13).

_ _ of my joy — that is, in which I delighted.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
