Discussion for Jeremiah 50:39

  • Daniel Snedden for verse 39
    This appears to be connected with Isaiah 13 22 Isaiah 34 14 Very interesting mention of strange beasts such as dragons, satyrs, doleful creatures etc. I would like to know what the beasts of the desert and beasts of the island are. The authors must assume the readers back then understood what these creatures are.
