Jeremiah 48:3 Meaning and Commentary

Jeremiah 48:3

A voice of crying [shall be] from Horonaim
Another city of Moab. The word is of the dual number; and, according to Kimchi and Ben Melech, there were two Horons, the upper and the lower; of this place (See Gill on Isaiah 15:5); this also should be destroyed; and so a cry of the inhabitants of it should be heard out of it: spoiling, and great destruction;
because the city was spoiled, and a great destruction made in the inhabitants and riches of it.

Jeremiah 48:3 In-Context

1 Concerning Moab: This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Woe to Nebo, for it will be ruined. Kiriathaim will be disgraced and captured; the stronghold will be disgraced and shattered.
2 Moab will be praised no more; in Heshbon people will plot her downfall: ‘Come, let us put an end to that nation.’ You, the people of Madmen, will also be silenced; the sword will pursue you.
3 Cries of anguish arise from Horonaim, cries of great havoc and destruction.
4 Moab will be broken; her little ones will cry out.
5 They go up the hill to Luhith, weeping bitterly as they go; on the road down to Horonaim anguished cries over the destruction are heard.
