Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 51:15-19

_ _ Repeated from Jeremiah 10:12-16; except that “Israel” is not in the Hebrew of Jeremiah 51:19, which ought, therefore, to be translated, “He is the Former of all things, and (therefore) of the rod of His inheritance” (that is, of the nation peculiarly His own). In Jeremiah 10:1-25 the contrast is between the idols and God; here it is between the power of populous Babylon and that of God: “Thou dwellest upon many waters” (Jeremiah 51:13); but God can, by merely “uttering His voice,” create “many waters” (Jeremiah 51:16). The “earth” (in its material aspect) is the result of His “power”; the “world” (viewed in its orderly system) is the result of His “wisdom,” etc. (Jeremiah 51:15). Such an Almighty Being can be at no loss for resources to effect His purpose against Babylon.
