Bible Verse Explanations and Resources


Jeremiah 50:19

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

I will bring Israel again - This seems to refer wholly to the ten tribes; for Carmel, Bashan, Mount Ephraim, and Gilead, were in their territories.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

Or, “I will bring Israel (the scared sheep) back to his pasturage (see Jeremiah 50:7) and he shall graze etc.” The places named are the districts of Palestine most famous for their rich herbage.

Matthew Henry
Concise Bible Commentary
The desolation that shall be brought upon Babylon is set forth in a variety of expressions. The cause of this destruction is the wrath of the Lord. Babylon shall be wholly desolated; for she hath sinned against the Lord. Sin makes men a mark for the arrows of God's judgments. The mercy promised to the Israel of God, shall not only accompany, but arise from the destruction of Babylon. These sheep shall be gathered from the deserts, and put again into good pasture. All who return to God and their duty, shall find satisfaction of soul in so doing. Deliverances out of trouble are comforts indeed, when fruits of the forgiveness of sin.
