Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 51:25

_ _ destroying mountain — called so, not from its position, for it lay low (Jeremiah 51:13; Genesis 11:2, Genesis 11:9), but from its eminence above other nations, many of which it had “destroyed”; also, because of its lofty palaces, towers, hanging gardens resting on arches, and walls, fifty royal cubits broad and two hundred high.

_ _ roll thee down from the rocks — that is, from thy rock-like fortifications and walls.

_ _ burnt mountain — (Revelation 8:8). A volcano, which, after having spent itself in pouring its “destroying” lava on all the country around, falls into the vacuum and becomes extinct, the surrounding “rocks” alone marking where the crater had been. Such was the appearance of Babylon after its destruction, and as the pumice stones of the volcano are left in their place, being unfit for building, so Babylon should never rise from its ruins.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 51:1-58.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 51:25

Mountain — Babylon was very high for its power, and greatness, and had very high walls and towers, that it looked at a distance like an high rocky mountain. They had destroyed many people. Burnt — Thy cities and towers which appear like a mountain shall be burnt.

Behold, I [am] against thee, O destroying (o) mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out my hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the (p) rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.

(o) Not that Babylon stood on a mountain but because it was strong and seemed invincible.

(p) From your strongholds and fortresses.
