Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 51:49

_ _ caused ... to fall — literally, “has been for the falling,” that is, as Babylon made this its one aim to fill all places with the slain of Israel, so at Babylon shall all the slain of that whole land (not as English Version, “of all the earth”) [Maurer]. Henderson translates, “Babylon also shall fall, ye slain of Israel. Those also of Babylon shall fall, O ye slain of all the earth.” But, “in the midst of her,” Jeremiah 51:47, plainly answers to “at Babylon,” Jeremiah 51:49, English Version.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 51:1-58.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 51:49

Of all the earth — This term must be understood in a restrained sense; the Chaldeans coming up from all parts of Chaldea to help Babylon, were slain there, as by the means of Babylon the Israelites were slain that came from all parts of Judea to help Jerusalem.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 51:49
