“This chapter reads like a whirlwind! And the Lord is in the whirlwind. What has angered God at Moab? See verse 26 – “Make her drunk, for she has defied the Lord. Let Moab wallow in her vomit;     let her be an object of ridicule.” – this is the sin of sins. Judgment inevitably falls upon it, in man or nation. Yet God’s mercy can cure it and remove it – “Yet I will restore the fortunes of Moab in days to come,”declares the Lord.” (47). There is nothing too hard for the Lord.”

(Rev James Philip, Notes on Jeremiah 48:1-17, Gardenstown Church, Sunday 2nd September 1956)
