Jeremiah 49:33 MEANING

Jeremiah 49:33
Verse 33. - The same fate predicted for Hazor as for Edom (ver. 18). Dragons; rather, jackals (see on Jeremiah 10:22).

49:28-33 Nebuchadnezzar would make desolation among the people of Kedar, who dwelt in the deserts of Arabia. He who conquered many strong cities, will not leave those unconquered that dwell in tents. He will do this to gratify his own covetousness and ambition; but God orders it for correcting an unthankful people, and for warning a careless world to expect trouble when they seem most safe. They shall flee, get far off, and dwell deep in the deserts; they shall be dispersed. But privacy and obscurity are not always protection and security.And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons, and a desolation for ever,.... The city of Hazor, as well as the kingdoms of it; the royal city, where their king and principal men dwelt; even this should be no more inhabited by men, but by dragons, and the wild beasts of the field, and so remain for ever, at least a long time; see Isaiah 13:20;

there shall no man abide there, nor any son of man dwell in it: signifying the utter desolation of it; See Gill on Jeremiah 49:18.
