G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Jeremiah 46



Verses 1-28

The third and last section of the division containing the account of the prophet's ministry is occupied with his messages concerning the nations.

The first of these has to do with Egypt, and consists of two prophecies. The earlier one described the army of Egypt in its preparation and advance, and declared that this proud preparation of Egypt for battle was but the coming of the day of Jehovah's vengeance against Egypt. In general terms he predicted her doom, declaring that there would be no healing for her, and that the nations would hear of her shame.

The second distinctly predicted the defeat of Egypt by Nebuchadnezzar, and yet affirmed that the king of Babylon would be but the instrument in the hand of Jehovah. In graphic and lofty language he described the coming of the foe and the discomfiture of Egypt, and carefully ascribed everything to the determinate counsel and activity of Jehovah. This prophecy ends with a message of comfort to Jacob, who, while afflicted, is yet not to be utterly destroyed, but to be corrected by judgment.
