Jeremiah 6:4 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Prepare ye war - Rather, Sanctify ye war against her. War in ancient times was never undertaken without religions solemnities (see Deuteronomy 20:2 note). For some of these compare Ezekiel 21:21-23.

At noon - The mid-day heat is so great in the East as to be usually passed under shelter 2 Samuel 4:5; Sol 1:7. The morning-march of an army was made fasting, and was usually over by eight or nine.

Woe unto us! - Or,

Alas for us! "for the day" has turned

For the evening shadows are lengthening!
