Jeremiah 43:12 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

I will kindle - Or, "he shall kindle."

He shall burn them ... - i. e., he shall burn the temples, and carry away the gods.

And he shall array - literally, "And he shall wrap himself in the land of Egypt as the shepherd wrappeth himself in his cloak, and shall (go forth thence in peace;" i. e., With as great ease as a shepherd throws his cloak round him when going forth to watch his flock by night in the field, so easily shall the king of Babylon take possession of all the glory of Egypt, throw it round him, and depart without anyone resisting his progress.
