    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 32:24

    Behold the mounts - The huge terraces raised up to plant their engines on, that they might throw darts, stones, etc., into the city.

    Because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the pestilence - The city was now reduced to extreme necessity; and from the siege continuing nearly a year longer, we may conclude that the besieged made a noble defense.

    The mounts - See Jeremiah 6:6 note.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 32:24

    32:24 The mounts - Rather engines of war with which those nations used to batter walls, or to shoot great stones into places besieged.
