Jeremiah 21:14
But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, saith the LORD: and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round about it.









(11) And hath kindled a fire . . .--The phrase is partly literal (2Chronicles 36:19), partly figurative, for the complete destruction of Jerusalem by the wrath of Jehovah.

Verse 11. - Hath accomplished means here, not "hath finished," but "hath poured out in full measure," as in the song of Moses Jehovah declares that he will "spend his arrows upon them" - the Hebrew verb is the same as here (Deuteronomy 32:23). To show the completeness of Zion's ruin it is compared to a fire which hath devoured the (very) foundations thereof.
