Jeremiah 49:21

Context

49:21 The people of the earth will quake when they hear of their downfall. 1 

Their cries of anguish will be heard all the way to the Gulf of Aqaba. 2 

1 tn Heb “The earth will quake when at the sound of their downfall.” However, as in many other places “earth” stands here metonymically for the inhabitants or people of the earth (see E. W. Bullinger, Figures of Speech, 578-79, and compare usage in 2 Sam 15:23; Ps 66:4).

2 tn Heb “the Red Sea,” of which the Gulf of Aqaba formed the northeastern arm. The land of Edom once reached this far according to 1 Kgs 9:26.
