The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 48:30
I know his wrath, saith the Lord…
Against the Jews, and
other nations; what he has threatened to do unto them, and would do if
but [it shall] not [be] so;
as he has devised in his mind, and
threatened in his wrath; all his swelling thoughts and big words shall
come to nothing:
his lies shall not so effect [it];
it shall not be according to his
words; they will prove lies, and of no effect. Kimchi interprets it of
the sons of Moab, who shall not be able to do what they thought to do;
and Jarchi of his mighty ones; and the Targum of his nobles,
``and their nobles are not right, they do not as is becoming;''
perhaps it may be better understood of his diviners and soothsayers, as
the word is used in (Isaiah 44:25) ; and be rendered, "his diviners have not
done right" F6; they have deceived him with their lying oracles;
swelled him with pride; and brought him to ruin, he trusting to them.
