Jeremiah 8:4 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
Therefore God will make the place of their sins the scene of judgment on the sinners. There shall come days when men will call the valley of these abominations the valley of slaughter, i.e., shall make it into such a valley. Where they have sacrificed their children to Moloch, they shall themselves be slaughtered, massacred by their enemies. And in this valley, as an unclean place (Jeremiah 19:13), shall they be buried "for want of room;" since, because of the vast numbers of the slain, there will be nowhere else to put them.

Moreover. Blayney justly observes, that the change of speakers here requires to be carefully attended to. The prophet first, in the name of God, reproves the people, and threatens them with grievous calamities. Then, apostrophising his countrymen, he advises them to retire with him to some fortified city. God then threatens to bring foes against them, that are irresistible. The prophet next commiserates the daughter of his people, who is heard bewailing her forlorn case; whilst the voice of God breaks in upon her complaints, and shows that all this ruin is brought upon her by her infidelities. The prophet regrets that her wounds had not been healed, and laments over her slain.
for the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.
"Fallen, no more to rise, is the virgin Israel; forsaken on her land, with none to raise her up."
Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me.
