Jeremiah 22:22

Jeremiah 22:22

The wind shall eat up all thy pastors
King, nobles, counsellors, priests, prophets, and elders of the people; they shall be carried away as chaff before the wind, or perish as trees and fruits are blasted with an east wind; to which Nebuchadnezzar and his army are sometimes compared; see ( Jeremiah 18:17 ) . The Targum is,

``all thy governors shall be scattered to every wind;''
and thy lovers shall go into captivity:
the Assyrians and Egyptians, as before; see ( Jeremiah 52:31 Jeremiah 52:32 ) ; surely then thou shalt be ashamed and confounded for all thy
wickedness;
being disappointed of all protection from their governors at home, and of all help from their allies abroad; and will then, when too late, be convinced of all their wickedness, and ashamed of it.
