    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 50:26

    Open her store-houses - At the time that Cyrus took the city, it was full of provisions and treasures of all kinds; the walls had suffered no injury; and when the inhabitants heard that the enemy was within, they thought they must have arisen out of the earth in the center of the city!

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 50:26

    Against her - Or, to her, in order to plunder her. Her storehouses (literally granaries) are to burst open, the grain piled up in heaps, and finally they are to devote her to destruction, i. e., to burn her wealth with fire.

    From the utmost border - (Or, "from the first of you even to the last").

    Let nothing of her be left - literally, let her have no remnant. Contrast Jeremiah 5:10.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 50:26

    50:26 Open her store - houses - The granaries, or treasures of the Babylonians.
