7 Who is this that cometh up as a flood, whose waters are moved as the rivers?
7 "Who is this that rises like the Nile, like rivers of surging waters?
7 "Who is this, rising like the Nile, like rivers whose waters surge?
7 "Who is this like the Nile in flood? like its streams torrential?
7 "Who is this coming up like a flood, Whose waters move like the rivers?
7 "Who is this, rising like the Nile at floodtime, overflowing all the land?
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Jeremiah 46:7
Commentary on Jeremiah 46:1-12
(Read Jeremiah 46:1-12)
The whole word of God is against those who obey not the gospel of Christ; but it is for those, even of the Gentiles, who turn to Him. The prophecy begins with Egypt. Let them strengthen themselves with all the art and interest they have, yet it shall be all in vain. The wounds God inflicts on his enemies, cannot be healed by medicines. Power and prosperity soon pass from one to another in this changing world.
