Jeremiah 49:26

Jeremiah 49:26

Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets
Or "verily" F15 so Jarchi interprets it as an oath; Jehovah swearing that so it should be; that her young men, her choice ones such who were the flower of the city, and on whom its future prosperity depended; these should fall by the sword of the Chaldeans in the streets of the city, when having entered, and taken it: and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the Lord of
hosts;
soldiers and officers, men of strength and valour in whom the inhabitants of Damascus trusted for their defence; these should be cut oil by the sword of the enemy at the time of the siege, and taking of it.
