    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 31:26

    Upon this I awaked - It appears that the prophecy, commencing with Jeremiah 30:2 and ending with Jeremiah 31:25 of this chapter, was delivered to the prophet in a dream. Dahler supposes it to be a wish; that the prophet, though he could not hope to live to that time, might be permitted to awake up from his tomb; and, having seen this prosperity, would be content to return to his grave.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 31:26

    The prophet, seeming to himself to awake and look up in the midst of his sleep (whether ecstatic or not we cannot tell), rejoiced in a revelation so entirely consolatory, and unlike his usual message of woe.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 31:26

    31:26 Upon this I awaked - Probably this revelation was made to Jeremiah, in a dream.
