    Definitions for Jeremiah 10:22

    Bruit - News; a rumor; a report.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 10:22

    The noise of the bruit is come - How this silly French word bruit, which signifies noise, got in here, I cannot imagine. The simple translation is this: "The voice of the report! behold, it is come; yea, great commotion from the land of the north; (Chaldea); to make the cities of Judea a desolation, a habitation of wild beasts." That is, the report we had heard of the projected invasion of Judea by Nebuchadnezzar is confirmed. He has entered the land; the Chaldeans are at the doors, and the total desolation of Judea is their sole object.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 10:22

    The "great commotion" is the confused noise of the army on its march (see Jeremiah 8:16).

    Dragons - i. e., jackals; see the marginal reference.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 10:22

    10:22 Noise - Rumour, report.
