Jeremiah 48:34 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

A transition is now made from figurative to literal language, and Moab is summoned to leave the cities and take refuge in inaccessible rocks, because he will not be able to offer resistance to the enemy; cf. Jeremiah 48:6 and Jeremiah 48:9. "Like a dove that builds its nest over deep crevices." The reference is to wild pigeons, which occur in large numbers in Palestine, and make their nests in the clefts of high rocks (Sol 2:14) even at the present day, e.g., in the wilderness of Engedi; cf. Robinson's Palestine, ii. 203. בּעברי , lit., "on the other side of the mouth of the deep pit," or of the abyss, i.e., over the yawning hollows. בּעברי is a poetic form for בּעבר, as in Isaiah 7:20. The humiliation of Moab finds its justification in what is brought out in Jeremiah 48:29., his boundless pride and hatred against Israel.
