Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 51:34

_ _ me — Zion speaks. Her groans are what bring down retribution in kind on Babylon (Jeremiah 50:17; Psalms 102:13, Psalms 102:17, Psalms 102:20).

_ _ empty vessel — He has drained me out.

_ _ dragon — The serpent often “swallows” its prey whole; or a sea monster [Grotius].

_ _ filled his belly ... cast me out — like a beast, which, having “filled” himself to satiety, “casts out” the rest [Calvin]. After filling all his storehouses with my goods, he has cast me out of this land [Grotius].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 51:1-58.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 51:34

Me — The prophet speaks this in the name of the Jews. Cast me out — As beasts of prey eat what they please of other beasts they have preyed upon, and leave the rest in the field.
