The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 48:19
O inhabitant of Aroer…
Another city that belonged to
Moab, situated on the border of it towards Ammon, near the river Arnon;
(See Gill on 17:2);
stand by the way, and espy;
get to the road side where travellers pass,
and look out for them:
ask him that fleeth, and her that escapeth;
whether man or woman you
see fleeing, having escaped the army of the Chaldeans:
[and] say, what is done?
by the Chaldeans; ask what cities they have
taken; what progress they have made; what is done to their cities, that
they flee from them? tell all the particulars of things.
