Jeremiah 46:19

Context

46:19 Pack your bags for exile,

you inhabitants of poor dear Egypt. 1 

For Memphis will be laid waste.

It will lie in ruins 2  and be uninhabited.

Jeremiah 50:18

Context

50:18 So I, the Lord God of Israel who rules over all, say: 3 

‘I will punish the king of Babylon and his land

just as I punished the king of Assyria.

1 tn Heb “inhabitants of daughter Egypt.” Like the phrase “daughter Zion,” “daughter Egypt” is a poetic personification of the land, here perhaps to stress the idea of defenselessness.

2 tn For the verb here see HALOT 675 s.v. II נָצָה Nif and compare the usage in Jer 4:7; 9:11 and 2 Kgs 19:25. BDB derives the verb from יָצַת (so BDB 428 s.v. יָצַת Niph meaning “kindle, burn”) but still give it the meaning “desolate” here and in 2:15 and 9:11.

3 tn Heb “Therefore thus says Yahweh of armies, the God of Israel.” The first person is again adopted because the Lord is speaking. For this title, “Yahweh of armies,” compare 7:3 and the study note on 2:19.
