And their camels shall be a booty
To the Chaldean army, as before, ( Jeremiah 49:29 ) ; and the multitude of their cattle a spoil; to the same;
the Kedarenes had large flocks of sheep, as well as a multitude of camels, on which they lived, and in which their substance lay; see ( Isaiah 60:6 Isaiah 60:7 ) ( Job 1:3 ) ; and I will scatter into all winds them [that are] in the utmost
them that were gone with their flocks to feed them in the uttermost parts of their land; who, on hearing of the Chaldean army being entered and ravaging their country, would leave their flocks, and flee and be dispersed in the several parts of the world: or, "them that are cut in the corner" F21; in the corners of their beard; that have their hair cut all around, as the Arabians had; (See Gill on Jeremiah 9:26); and I will bring their calamity from all sides thereof, saith the Lord;
suggesting that Nebuchadnezzar should surround them with his army, and so dispose of his troops, by placing them some in one part, and some in another, that they should not be able to escape on any side. It denotes their utter destruction and desolation.
