Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 51:5

_ _ forsaken — as a widow (Hebrew). Israel is not severed from her husband, Jehovah (Isaiah 54:5-7), by a perpetual divorce.

_ _ though ... sin — though the land of Israel has been filled with sin, that is, with the punishment of their sin, devastation. But, as the Hebrew means “for,” or “and therefore,” not “though,” translate, “and therefore their (the Chaldeans’) land has been filled with (the penal consequences of) their sin” [Grotius].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 51:1-58.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 51:5

Forsaken — Not utterly forsaken.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 51:5

For Israel [hath] not [been] (b) forsaken, nor Judah by his God, by the LORD of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel.

(b) Though they were forsaken for a time, yet they were not utterly cast off as though their husbands were dead.
