Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 51:11

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 51:11


51:9 We - The prophet seems to personate the mercenary soldiers, saying, they would have helped Babylon, but there was no healing for her.

51:10 Some - These words are spoken in the person of the Jews, owning the destruction of Babylon to be the mighty work of God, and an act of justice, revenging the wrongs of his people.

51:12 Set up - These seem to be the prophet's words to the Babylonians, rousing them out of their security. Historians tell us that the city was fortified by walls of fifty cubits high, and two hundred cubits broad, and by a very deep and large ditch.

51:13 Waters - Babylon is said to dwell upon many waters, because the great river Euphrates, did not only run by it, but almost encompass it branching itself into many smaller rivers, which made several parts of the city, islands.
