Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 49:11

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 49:11


49:9 If - Edom shall be totally destroyed; their destruction should not be like the gleaning of grapes, where the gatherers content themselves with taking the principal clusters: nor yet like the robbings of thieves, who take for their hunger, and when they have got enough leave the rest.

49:12 They - The Jews, who in comparison with others did not deserve to drink of the cup, yet have drank of it, and can you think to escape? When an Israelite hath not escaped the justice of God, an Edomite must not expect it.

49:13 Bozrah - Edom is expressed under the name of Bozrah, (a part for the whole) Bozrah being its principal city.
