    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 50:15

    Shout against her round about - Encompass her with lines and with troops; let none go in with relief, none come out to escape from her ruin.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 50:15

    Shout - i. e., spoken of the war-cry. So in Isaiah 42:13, where God is compared to a warrior, it is said He shall shout (the King James Version cry), i. e., raise the war-cry.

    Site hath given her hand - The sign of submission (compare 1 Chronicles 29:24 margin).

    Foundations - Or, buttresses. The Septuagint: "battlements."

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 50:15

    50:15 Given her hand - Acknowledging themselves overcome, and yielding. As she hath done - Unmerciful men find no mercy.
