The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible

Jeremiah 48:18

Thou daughter that dost inhabit Dibon
A city in Moab; (See Gill on 15:2). The Targum is,

``O kingdom of the congregation of Dibon;''
but this was not a kingdom of itself, though a principal city in the kingdom of Moab: come down from [thy] glory, and sit in thirst;
in a dry and thirsty land; in want of all the necessaries of life; in captivity; who before abounded with all good things, inhabiting a well watered and fruitful soil; see (Isaiah 15:9) ; but now called to quit all their former glory and happiness, their fulness and felicity, and submit to the greatest straits and difficulties: for the spoiler of Moab shall come upon thee, [and] he shall destroy
thy strong holds;
the king of Babylon and his army, who spoiled the other cities of Moab; he should come against this also, and take it, and demolish its fortifications, by reason of which it thought itself secure; but these should not be able to protect it.
