    Definitions for Jeremiah 25:10

    Mirth - Gladness; rejoicing.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 25:10

    I will take from them - See Jeremiah 7:34, and Jeremiah 16:9.

    The sound of the mill-stones, and the light of the candle - These two are conjoined, because they generally ground the corn before day, by the light of the candle. Sir J. Chardin has remarked, that every where in the morning may be heard the noise of the mills; for they generally grind every day just as much as is necessary for the day's consumption. Where then the noise of the grill is not heard, nor the light of the candle seen, there must be desolation; because these things are heard and seen in every inhabited country.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 25:10

    Take from them ... the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle - (or, lamp). To denote the entire cessation of domestic life. The one was the sign of the preparation of the daily meal, the other of the assembling of the family after the labors of the day were over.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 25:10

    25:10 Moreover - Nay, I will not only deprive you of your mirth, but of those things that are necessary for you, as necessary as bread and light, the millstone shall not move, you shall not have the light so much as of a candle.
