Behold the noise of the bruit is come
Or, "the voice of hearing" F3; that is, the voice heard; the report that was made that the king of Babylon had invaded the land, and was coming up to besiege Jerusalem: "and a great commotion out of the north country"; a large army from Babylon, which lay north of Judea, which came with great noise, and caused a great trembling and shaking among the inhabitants of the land whither they were coming: to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons;
this shows that the whole paragraph is to be understood of the Jewish nation, and of their destruction. (See Gill on Jeremiah 9:11).
F3 (hewmv lwq) "vox auditionis", Pagninus, Montanus; "vox auditus", Vatablus, Calvin; "vox famae", Schmidt.
