Jeremiah 8:16 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan - From this to the end of Jeremiah 8:15 is repeated from Babylon to Jerusalem; and it was by this city, after the battle of Carchemish, that Nebuchadnezzar, in pursuing the Egyptians, entered Palestine.

This is a fine image; so terrible was the united neighing of the cavalry of the Babylonians that the reverberation of the air caused the ground to tremble. This is better, and more majestic, than the celebrated line of Virgil: -

It is the union of our members with the very body of Christ and the inflowing life of Christ in our living members. It is as real as His risen and glorified body. It is as reasonable as the fact that He was raised from the dead and is a living man with a true body and a rational soul to-day, at God's right …

Desolation of the Earth
Then thundered the horses' hooves-- galloping, galloping go his mighty steeds.
They named it Dan after their ancestor Dan, who was born to Israel--though the city used to be called Laish.
Do you make it leap like a locust, striking terror with its proud snorting?
From our youth shameful gods have consumed the fruits of our ancestors' labor-- their flocks and herds, their sons and daughters.
A voice is announcing from Dan, proclaiming disaster from the hills of Ephraim.
They will devour your harvests and food, devour your sons and daughters; they will devour your flocks and herds, devour your vines and fig trees. With the sword they will destroy the fortified cities in which you trust.
Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the peoples who do not call on your name. For they have devoured Jacob; they have devoured him completely and destroyed his homeland.
