Jeremiah 25:20

And all the mingled people
Not the Arabians, who are mentioned afterwards, (Jeremiah 25:24) ; but rather a mixed people in the land of Egypt, such as came out of it along with the Israelites; or were near it, and bordered upon it, as the Targum; which renders it, all the bordering kings; or rather a mixture of people of different nations that dwelt by the sea coasts, either the Mediterranean, or the Red sea, as others think: and all the kings of the land of Uz;
not the country of Job, called by the Greeks Ausitis, as the Vulgate Latin version; but rather a country of Idumea, so called from Uz the son of Dishan, the son of Seir, (Lamentations 4:21) (Genesis 36:28) ; and all the kings of the land of the Philistines;
the petty kings of it, called the lords of the Philistines elsewhere, who were great enemies to the people of the Jews: the prophecy of their destruction is in forty seventh chapter, and whose principal cities are next mentioned: and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod;
of Ashkelon, and the sword in it, and ruin, see (Jeremiah 47:5,7) . "Azzah" is the same with Gaza, whose destruction is also foretold in (Jeremiah 47:1,5) ; see (Acts 8:26) ; "Ekron" was another of the cities of the Philistines; see (1 Samuel 5:10) ; and "Ashdod" is the same with Azotus, another of their cities, (Acts 8:40) ; called "the remnant of Ashdod", because the remains only of a once very strong and fortified place; but was so weakened and wasted by Psammiticus, king of Egypt, in a blockade of it, for the space of nine and twenty years F11, before he took it, that when he had got in it, it was but as the carcass of a city, to what it was before F12.
