The prophet, in this chapter, goes on with the
prediction of Babylon's fall, to which other prophets also bore
witness. He is very copious and lively in describing the foresight
God had given him of it, for the encouragement of the pious
captives, whose deliverance depended upon it and was to be the
result of it. Here is, I. The record of Babylon's doom, with the
particulars of it, intermixed with the grounds of God's controversy
with her, many aggravations of her fall, and great encouragements
given thence to the Israel of God, that suffered such hard things
by her, ver. 1-58. II.
The representation and ratification of this by the throwing of a
copy of this prophecy into the river Euphrates, ver. 59-64.
