    Definitions for Jeremiah 51:5

    Forsaken - To leave in an abandoned condition.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 51:5

    For Israel hath not been forsaken - God still continued his prophets among them; he had never cast them wholly off. Even in the midst of wrath - highly deserved and inflicted punishment, he has remembered mercy; and is now about to crown what he has done by restoring them to their own land. I conceive אשם asham, which we translate sin, as rather signifying punishment, which meaning it often has.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 51:5

    51:5 Forsaken - Not utterly forsaken.
