(47) Therefore, behold, the days come . . .--The first word has its full force. The Israelite exiles were to infer from the rumours and disorders of the preceding verse, that the day of vengeance was at hand. The formula, "behold, the days come," was Jeremiah's customary manner of announcing a prediction (comp. Jeremiah 7:32; Jeremiah 16:14, et al.). For "slain" some commentators read "wounded" or "smitten," as the word is rendered in Psalm 69:26; Job 24:12, the words that follow indicating that the wounded shall have no power to escape, but shall fill the city with their corpses.
