The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 49:15
For, lo, I will make thee small among the Heathen…
have given thee", or "made thee" F13; as if it respected what Edom was
at first, a people few in number, and their country not large, as Aben
Ezra and Kimchi, and after them Abarbinel: but it rather intends what
Edom should be F14; and which was the reason of gathering the Chaldeans
against them, to reduce their number, weaken their strength, and
destroy their substance, and so make them a small, feeble, and
contemptible people; as follows:
[and] despised among men:
for the fewness of their men, the desolation
of their country, the consumption of their wealth and riches, their
poverty and meanness; see (Obadiah 1:2) .
F13 (Kyttn) "posui", Munster; "reddidi", Piscator; "dedi", V. L. Cocceius,
