    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 12:12

    The sword of the Lord shall devour - It is the sword of the Lord that has devoured, and will devour: this is what no man layeth to heart. They think these things come in the course of events.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 12:12

    Through - in. Even these remote scaurs do not escape, polluted as they had been by the nation's idolatries.

    Shall devour - Or, devoureth. These hosts of war come as Yahweh's sword.

    No flesh shall have peace - "Flesh" in Genesis 6:3 means mankind as sinners; here, Judah. "Peace" in Hebrew has the wider signification of "welfare, happiness." Hence, their salutation in life was, "Peace be to thee," and in death "In Peace" was engraved upon their sepulchres.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 12:12

    12:12 Are come - The prophet, as usual, speaks of a thing as already done, which was very shortly to be done. No flesh - No rank or order of men.
