Jeremiah 50:45 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Therefore shall Babylon become an eternal waste, where none but beasts of the desert find shelter, where no human being dwells. This threat is formed out of reminiscences from Isaiah 13:20-22 and Isaiah 34:14. For ציּים and איּים, see on Isaiah 34:14; for בּנות יענה, see on Isaiah 13:21. The second half of the verse agrees word for word with Isaiah 13:20.
