[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: The surprising message of Jeremiah 49 is that return from captivity and restoration to normal life (as above) will be the lot of several of Israel's neighbors, though their judgments will be severe. The chapter begins with a prophecy against the Ammonites. First, the LORD pronounced desolation on the Ammonites because they stole the inheritance of the Israelite tribe of Gad (1-2).
     Then the LORD said that they would experience anguish and that their kings, priests, and princes would go into captivity; their land and their fortunes would come to nothing; but they would come out of captivity later (3-6).
     The LORD then speaks against Edom, saying that they will be like a grapevine stripped bare (7-11).
     They will drink the cup of desolation, wasting, and curse; and their land will be a perpetual waste (12-13).
     Their pride has deceived them; but they will be pulled down from their high nest (14-16).
     Edom will be a desolation; passers-by will be astonished; it will be like Sodom and Gomorrah; it will go out strong but will flee from its adversaries because the LORD is against them and none can stand against him; the earth will be moved at their fall; it will come swiftly, like an eagle; and pain like birth-pangs will come upon them (17-22).
     Feebleness, fear, anguish, and sorrow is coming to Syria; the warriors will fall; and Damascus and its palaces will burn (23-27).
     Nebuchadrezzar will spoil the kingdoms of Kedar and Hazor; so the LORD advises them to flee (28-30).
     Though they dwell without fear, their camels and their cattle will be taken; calamity will come from all sides; and it will be uninhabited (31-33).
     The strength of the Elamites will be broken, and they will be scattered throughout the nations; they will be dismayed by the LORD's fierce anger, and it will consume them and their king and their princes (34-38).
     But the LORD will bring the captive Elamites back in the latter days (39).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

4). Ammon: Exile and Recovery (49:1-6)

     1 Concerning [sons of] the Ammonites,

     thus saith the LORD;

Hath Israel no [nothing of] sons?
hath he no [nothing of] heir?
why then doth their king inherit [this] Gad,
and his people dwell in his cities?
2 Therefore, behold,
the days come,
saith the LORD,
that I will cause an alarm of war
to be heard in Rabbah of the Ammonites;
and it shall be a desolate heap,
and her daughters shall be burned with fire:
then shall Israel be heir unto them that were [this] his heirs,
saith the LORD.

3 Howl, O Heshbon,
for Ai is spoiled:
cry, ye daughters of Rabbah,
gird you with sackcloth;
and run to and fro by the hedges;
for their king shall go into captiviy,
and his priests and his princes together.
4 Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys,
thy flowing valley,
O backsliding daughter?
that trusted in her treasures,
Who shall come unto me?
5 Behold,
I will bring a fear upon thee,
saith the Lord GOD of hosts,
from all those that be about thee;
and ye shall be driven out
every man right forth;
none shall gather up him that wandereth.

     6 And afterward I will bring again [this] the captiviy of the children of Ammon, saith the LORD.

5). Edom: Destruction (49:7-22)

     7 Concerning Edom,

     thus saith the LORD of hosts;

     12 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, they whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken [drinking the shall drunk]; and art thou he that shall altogether go unpunished [clean you shall be clean]? thou shalt not go unpunished, but thou shalt surely drink [drinking you shall drink] of it. 13 For I have sworn by myself, saith the LORD, that Bozrah shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse; and all the cities thereof shall be perpetual wastes.

14 I have heard a rumour from the LORD,
and an ambassador is sent unto the heathen,
saying, Gather ye together,
and come against her,
and rise up to the battle.
15 For, lo,
I will make thee small among the heathen,
and despised among men.
16 Thy terribleness hath deceived thee,
and the pride of thine heart,
O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock,
that holdest the height of the hill:
though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle,
I will bring thee down  from thence,
saith the LORD.

     17 Also Edom shall be a desolation: every one that goeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss at all the plagues thereof. 18 As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the LORD, no man shall abide there, neither shall a son of man dwell in it. 19 Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan against the habitation of the strong: but I will suddenly make him run away from her: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me? 20 Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD, that he hath taken against Edom; and his purposes, that he hath purposed against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitations desolate with them. 21 The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea. 22 Behold, he shall come up and fly as the eagle, and spread his wings over Bozrah: and at that day shall the heart of the mighty men of Edom be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.

6). Damascus (Syria): Destruction (49:23-27)

     23 Concerning Damascus.

7). Kedar and the Kingdoms of Hazor: Destruction (49:28-33)

     28 Concerning Kedar, and concerning the kingdoms of Hazor, which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon shall smite,

thus saith the LORD;
Arise ye,
go up to Kedar,
and spoil [this] the men of the east.
29 Their tents and their flocks shall they take away:
they shall take to themselves their curtains,
and all their vessels,
and their camels;
and they shall cry unto them,
Fear is on every side.
30 Flee,
get you far off,
dwell deep,
O ye inhabitants of Hazor,
saith the LORD;
for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath taken counsel against you,
and hath conceived a purpose against you.

31 Arise,
get you up unto the wealthy nation,
that dwelleth without care,
saith the LORD,
which have neither gates nor bars,
which dwell alone.
32 And their camels shall be a booty,
and the multitude of their cattle a spoil:
and I will scatter into all winds
them that are in the utmost corners;
and I will bring [this] their calamity
from all sides thereof,
saith the LORD.
33 And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons,
and a desolation for ever:
there shall no man abide there,
nor any son of man dwell in it.

8). Elam: Exile and Recovery (49:34-39)

     34 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying,

     35 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break [this] the bow of Elam, the chief of their might. 36 And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come. 37 For I will cause [this] Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even [this] my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send [this] the sword after them, till I have consumed them: 38 And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.

     39 But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again [this] the captiviy of Elam, saith the LORD.
