    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 6:25

    For the sword of the enemy - literally, "for to the enemy a sword; i. e., for the enemy is armed," he has a commission from God to execute judgment. See Jeremiah 12:12; Isaiah 10:5, and Psalm 17:13 note.

    Fear is on every side - Magor-Missabib, Jeremiah's watchword (compare Jeremiah 20:3, Jeremiah 20:10). The "and" before it should be omitted.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 6:25

    6:25 Go not forth - Expressing the great danger that there would be everywhere.
