Jeremiah 2:15


2:15 Like lions his enemies roar victoriously over him;

they raise their voices in triumph. 1 

They have laid his land waste;

his cities have been burned down and deserted. 2 

Jeremiah 9:11


9:11 The Lord said, 3 

“I will make Jerusalem 4  a heap of ruins.

Jackals will make their home there. 5 

I will destroy the towns of Judah

so that no one will be able to live in them.”

1 tn Heb “Lions shout over him, they give out [raise] their voices.”

sn The reference to lions is here a metaphor for the Assyrians (and later the Babylonians, see Jer 50:17). The statement about lions roaring over their prey implies that the prey has been vanquished.

2 tn Heb “without inhabitant.”

3 tn The words “the Lord said” are not in the text, but it is obvious from the content that he is the speaker. These words are supplied in the translation for clarity.

4 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

5 tn Heb “a heap of ruins, a haunt for jackals.”
