Commentary for Jeremiah 47

The calamities of the Philistines.

For when the Lord intends to destroy the wicked, he will cut off every helper. So deplorable are the desolations of war, that the blessings of peace are most desirable. But we must submit to His appointments who ordains all in perfect wisdom and justice.

Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.
