Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 50:3

_ _ a nation — the Medes, north of Babylon (Jeremiah 51:48). The devastation of Babylon here foretold includes not only that by Cyrus, but also that more utter one by Darius, who took Babylon by artifice when it had revolted from Persia, and mercilessly slaughtered the inhabitants, hanging four thousand of the nobles; also the final desertion of Babylon, owing to Seleucia having been built close by under Seleucus Nicanor.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 50:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 50:3

The north — From Media which lay northward to Babylon and Assyria.
