Jeremiah 22:7 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

They shall cut down thy choice cedars - The destruction of the country is expressed under the symbol of the destruction of a fine forest; a multitude of fellers come against it, each with his axe; and, there being no resistance, every tree is soon felled to the earth.
