(22) Thou hast called . . .--Better, Thou hast summoned, as for a solemn feast-day. (Comp. Lamentations 1:15.) In "terrors round about" we have a characteristic phrase of Jeremiah's (Jeremiah 6:25; Jeremiah 20:3; Jeremiah 20:10). The LXX., followed by some commentators, gives the rendering, "Thou hast summoned . . . my villages," but on no sufficient grounds.

Verse 22. - Thou hast called as in a solemn day. The passage is illustrated by Lamentations 1:15, according to which the instruments of Jehovah's vengeance are "summoned" by him to a festival when starting for the holy war. My terrors round about. Almost identical with one of the characteristic phrases of Jeremiah's prophecies, "fear [or rather, 'terror'] on every side" (see on Jeremiah 6:25). Have swaddled; rather, have borne upon the hands.
