12 The nations will hear of your shame; your cries will fill the earth. One warrior will stumble over another; both will fall down together."

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Jeremiah 46:12

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.
