15 He is the one who[a] by his power made the earth. He is the one who by his wisdom fixed the world in place, by his understanding he spread out the heavens.
Jeremiah 51:15tn The Hebrew participle here is intended to be connected with “Lord who rules over all” in the preceding verse. The passage is functioning to underline the Lord’s power to carry out what he has sworn, in contrast to the impotence of their idols, who will be put to shame and be dismayed (50:2).
