The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 6:12
And their houses shall be turned unto others…
strangers, to the Chaldeans; they shall be transferred unto them, come
into their hands, and become their property:
with their fields and wives together:
not only their houses and lands
shall be taken away from them, and put to the use of others, but even
their wives; than which nothing could be more distressing:
for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith
the inhabitants of the land of Judea; and so the Septuagint
render it, "upon them that inhabit this land"; and so the Arabic
version: wherefore, since the Lord would exert himself in this affair,
and stretch out his hand of almighty power, as the Targum paraphrases
``I will lift up the stroke of my power;''
it might be depended upon that all this destruction threatened would
come on them.
