Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 51:45-46.


Jeremiah 51:46

_ _ And lest — Compare, for the same ellipsis, Genesis 3:22; Exodus 13:17; Deuteronomy 8:12. “And in order that your heart may not faint at the (first) rumor” (of war), I will give you some intimation of the time. In the first “year” there shall “come a rumor” that Cyrus is preparing for war against Babylon. “After that, in another year, shall come a rumor,” namely, that Cyrus is approaching, and has already entered Assyria. Then is your time to “go out” (Jeremiah 51:45). Babylon was taken the following or third year of Belshazzar’s reign [Grotius].

_ _ violence in the land — of Babylon (Psalms 7:16).

_ _ ruler against ruler — or, “ruler upon ruler,” a continual change of rulers in a short space. Belshazzar and Nabonidus, supplanted by Darius or Cyaxares, who is succeeded by Cyrus.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 51:1-58.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 51:46

And lest your heart should faint, and ye should fear for the rumour that shall be heard in the land; a rumour shall both come [one] (b) year, and after that in [another] year [shall come] a rumour, and violence in the land, ruler against ruler.

(b) Meaning that Babylon would not be destroyed all at once but little by little would be brought to nothing for the first year came the tidings, the next year the siege and in the third year it was taken: yet this is not that horrible destruction which the prophets threatened in many places: for that was after this when they rebelled and Darius over came them by the policy of Zopyrus, and hanged three thousand gentlemen beside the common people.
