Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 9:10

_ _ Jeremiah breaks in upon Jehovah’s threats of wrath with lamentation for his desolated country.

_ _ mountains — once cultivated and fruitful: the hillsides were cultivated in terraces between the rocks.

_ _ habitations of ... wilderness — rather, “the pleasant herbage (literally, ‘the choice parts’ of any thing) of the pasture plain.” The Hebrew for “wilderness” expresses not a barren desert, but an untilled plain, fit for pasture.

_ _ burned up — because no one waters them, the inhabitants being all gone.

_ _ none can pass through them — much less inhabit them.

_ _ fowl — (Jeremiah 4:25).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 9:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 9:10

Wailing — The prophet having taken up a lamentation for the slaughter of the people, now re — assumes it for the desolation of the whole land. The mountains shall not be able to secure them, nor the valleys to feed them.
