    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 49:28

    Concerning Kedar, and Concerning the Kingdoms of Hazor - This is the title of another new prophecy.

    Kedar was the name of one of the sons of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13) who settled in Arabia, and who gave name to a powerful tribe of Arabs who used to traffic with the Tyrians in cattle. It appears from this prophecy that Nebuchadnezzar got a commission to go against and reduce them to great misery.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 49:28

    Hazor, derived from a word signifying an unwalled village, is a general appellative of those Arab tribes who were partially settled, while Kedar signifies the Bedawin, who used only tents. Some think that Hazor is another way of spelling Jetor, i. e., Ituraea, whose inhabitants, with the Kedarenes, would naturally be called the sons of the East.

    Shall smite - Or, smote.
