Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible
Jeremiah 47

 

 

Introduction

The calamities of the Philistines.


Verses 1-7

The Philistines had always been enemies to Israel; but the Chaldean army shall overflow their land like a deluge. Those whom God will spoil, must be spoiled. 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.
