The Prophecy concerning the Ammonites

491 Concerning the Ammonites: This is what the Lord says: "Has Israel no sons? Has Israel no heir? Why then has Molek[1] taken possession of Gad? Why do his people live in its towns?

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Jeremiah 49:1

Commentary on Jeremiah 49:1-6

(Read Jeremiah 49:1-6)

Might often prevails against right among men, yet that might shall be controlled by the Almighty, who judges aright; and those will find themselves mistaken, who, like the Ammonites, think every thing their own on which they can lay their hands. The Lord will call men to account for every instance of dishonesty, especially to the destitute.
