(8) The valley also shall perish . . .--The cities of "the plain" are enumerated in Jeremiah 48:21-24. They belonged to the Arabah, the sunken valley of the Jordan, the "plains of Moab" of Numbers 22:1; Deuteronomy 3:10; Deuteronomy 4:43. The "valley" here is not connected with anything that helps us to identify it, but it may have been that of the Arnon, or the words may be used generically for "every valley" and "every plain."

Verse 8. - The valley... the plain. The latter (Hebrew, mishor) is the upland region which extends from the Jordan eastward of Jericho into the Arabian desert; in Numbers 21:20 it is called the "field" (i.e. "open country") of Moab. The former means that part of the Jordan valley which borders on this upland "plain" towards the west.
