    Definitions for Jeremiah 51:44

    Yea - Yes; certainly.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 51:44

    I will punish Bel in Babylon - Bel or Belus was their supreme deity.

    That which he hath swallowed up - The sacred vessels of the temple of Jerusalem, which were taken thence by Nebuchadnezzar, and dedicated to him in his temple at Babylon.

    The wall of Babylon shall fall - It shall cease to be a defense; and shall moulder away until, in process of time, it shall not be discernible.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 51:44

    The sacred vessels plundered from Jerusalem, and laid up in the very temple of Bel, should be restored; the men and women dragged from other lands to people the city, released; and its wall falling would show the insignificance to which it should be reduced.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 51:44

    51:44 Bel - Bel was the principal Babylonian idol. Bring forth - All the vessels of the temple, 2Chron 36:7, and whatever gifts the Babylonians had presented to him. The wall - And the city of Babylon shall be also ruined.
