    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 30:18

    The city shall be builded upon her own heap - Be re-edified from its own ruins. See the book of Nehemiah, passim.

    And the palace shall remain - Meaning, the king's house shall be restored; or, more probably, the temple shall be rebuilt; which was true, for after the Babylonish captivity it was rebuilt by Nehemiah, etc. By the tents, distinguished from the dwelling-places of Jacob, we may understand all the minor dispersions of the Jews, as well as those numerous synagogues found in large cities.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 30:18

    The prophet speaks of Judah as the type of the Church, with Immanuel as her king.

    Jeremiah 30:18

    tents - The word suggests that a considerable portion of the people were still nomads.

    The city ... the palace - Or, each city ... each palace. The heap means an artificial mount to keep the city out of the reach of inundations, and to increase the strength of the fortifications.

    Shall remain after the manner thereof - Rather, shall be inhabited according to its rights, i. e., suitably.
