Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Jeremiah 33:10-16

Here is a further prediction of the happy state of Judah and Jerusalem after their glorious return out of captivity, issuing gloriously at length in the kingdom of the Messiah. I. It is promised that the people who were long in sorrow shall again be filled with joy. Every one concluded now that the country would lie for ever desolate, that no beasts would be found in the land of Judah, no inhabitant in the streets of Jerusalem, and consequently there would be nothing but universal and... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 33:10

Thus saith the Lord, again there shall be heard in this place ,.... This is to be connected with the beginning of Jeremiah 33:11 ; and what follows to be put in a parenthesis: which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast : as in Jeremiah 32:43 ; the destruction of it being now certain and inevitable; and by which such desolation would be made throughout the country, that very few men or cattle would be left: even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of... read more

John Calvin

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 33:10

Verse 10 These two verses are connected together, and have been improperly divided, for the sentence is not complete. In the first place we have, Yet shall be heard, but what? the voice of joy, etc., as we find in the following verse. Jeremiah confirms at large what he had taught respecting the return of the people, because there was need of many and strong supports, that, the faithful might proceed in their course with confidence It was indeed difficult to muster courage under so great a... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Jeremiah 33:10-11

The mournful stillness of the present, and the gladsome voices of the future. I. THE PRESENT STILLNESS . What makes it so painful? Not all stillness is painful; indeed, stillness is often very grateful, a thing to be sought, a timely refuge for those who are stunned and confused by the clamours of the world. The stillness of night is pleasant after the noise of day. The stillness of the mountain and the wilderness seems more still when one has come from the city's bustle. There is... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Jeremiah 33:10-13

Town and country life. In describing the happy future of Israel after the restoration Jeremiah draws a pair of idyllic pictures of town and country life. Both the city of Jerusalem and the outlying regions were so depopulated and wasted by the Chaldean invasion that it was difficult to believe the sun of prosperity would ever shine on them again. But under the providence of God there is a wonderful recuperative power in the human world as well as in the natural. It is remarkable how soon... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Jeremiah 33:10-18

Paradise lost and regained. I. THE PICTURE OF A PARADISE LOST . This is given in Jeremiah 33:10 . The land desolate; the flocks and herds all gone; no human being to be seen; the cities laid waste. Now, this meagre outline would recall to the mind of the Jews the blessed days when the land teemed with inhabitants; when the cities were numerous, wealthy, populous, and strong; when the hills and dales of their countryside were covered over with flocks; and when, in the glad... read more

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible - Jeremiah 33:10

Which ye say shall be desolate - Of which ye say, It is desolate ... The prophet first sees Judaea silent and desolate during the 70 years’ captivity: and then describes the two things, men and cattle, without which land is valueless. read more

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments - Jeremiah 33:10-11

Jeremiah 33:10-11. Again there shall be heard in this place which ye say shall be desolate See note on Jeremiah 32:43; the voice of joy and the voice of gladness The contrary to what takes place in the times of captivity and desolation. The voice of them that shall say, Praise ye the Lord, for the Lord is good, &c. We read, (Ezra 3:11,) that those who returned from captivity used this very hymn. And of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord Such... read more
