Why, behold, the days come, said the LORD, that I will do judgment on her graven images: and through all her land the wounded shall groan.

EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Jeremiah 51:52.
I … judgment upon … images—in opposition to the Babylonian taunt that Jehovah's religion was a thing of naught, since they had burned His temple (Jer 51:51): I will show that, though I have thus visited the Jews neglect of Me, yet those gods of Babylon cannot save themselves, much less their votaries, who shall "through all her land" lie and "groan" with wounds.Jeremiah 51:47; it is an answer to the objection and complaint of the Jews, and is designed for their comfort and encouragement: Wherefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will do judgment upon her graven images: and through all her land the wounded shall groan.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)52. See on Jeremiah 51:47.Job 42:16). וחמס בּארץ is also to be taken as dependent, grammatically, on וּבא: "and when a deed of violence is committed in the land, one ruler (rises up) against the other." These words presuppose not merely a pretty long duration of the war, but also rebellion and revolution, through which Babylon is to go to ruin. In this sense they are employed by Christ for describing the wars and risings that are to precede His advent; Matthew 24:6; Mark 13:7; Luke 21:9.
