Jeremiah 46:26

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

Afterward it shall be inhabited - That is, within forty years, as Ezekiel had predicted, Ezekiel 29:13.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

Afterward … - The invasion of Nebuchadnezzar is to be a passing calamity, the severity of which will be felt chiefly by the Jews, but no subjugation of Egypt is to be attempted, and after the Chaldaean army has withdrawn things will resume their former course.

Matthew Henry
Concise Bible Commentary
Those who encroached on others, shall now be themselves encroached on. Egypt is now like a very fair heifer, not accustomed to the yoke of subjection; but destruction comes out of the north: the Chaldeans shall come. Comfort and peace are spoken to the Israel of God, designed to encourage them when the judgments of God were abroad among the nations. He will be with them, and only correct them in measure; and will not punish them with everlasting destruction from his presence.
