Fear thou not, O Jacob, my servant, saith the Lord, for I [am]
Though afar off, in foreign lands, and in captivity: this exhortation is repeated, to strengthen their consolation, and them, against their fears of being cast off by the Lord: for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven
the Babylonians and Chaldeans are no more: but I will not make a full end of thee;
the Jews to this day remain a people, and distinct from others, though scattered about in the world: but correct thee in measure;
with judgment, and in mercy: yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished;
(See Gill on Jeremiah 30:11).
