Jeremiah 23:18 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

For this the Lord will punish them. Their way shall be to them as slippery places in darkness. This threatening is after the manner of Psalm 35:6, where חשׁך are joined, changed by Jeremiah to the words in the text. The passage cited shows that we may not separate בּאפלה from חלקלקּות, as Ew. does, to join it to the following ידּחוּ. Their way shall resemble slippery places in the dark, when one may readily slip and fall. Besides, they are to be thrust, pushed, so that they must fall on the slippery path (ידּחוּ from דּחח equals דּחה, Psalm 35:5; "therein" to be referred to "their way"). The clause: "for I bring evil," etc., is formed after Jeremiah 11:23.
