Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 49:37

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 49:37


49:38 My throne - God calls the throne of Cyrus or Alexander his throne; because he gave it the conqueror.

49:39 But - We had the like promise as to Moab, chap.#48:47|, and as to Ammon, ver.#49:6|, the same latter days either signify after many days, or in the time of the Messiah. In the former sense it may refer to Cyrus, who conquered Persia. In the latter sense it refers to the spiritual liberty which some of these poor Heathens were brought into by the gospel. We read #Acts 2:9|, that some of the Elamites were at Jerusalem at pentecost, and were some of those converted to Christ.
