Jer 50:21

“Merathaim...Pekod.” These are towns in Babylon, picked because of their names and used in reference to the whole of the country of Babylon. “Merathaim” means “Double Rebellion” and “Pekod” means “Punishment.”

“devote them to destruction.” That is, devote them as an offering to Yahweh and destroy them. [For more on things “devoted” to Yahweh and devoted to destruction, see commentary on Josh. 6:17].

“idols that cause terror.” A more literal reading is “because of their Terrors,” but “terrors” is a metonymy for the idols that cause terror (by the atrocities they demand, the evil predictions they make, and the fact that they lead to everlasting death). In this case, the clearer English reading of “idols that cause terror” seems justified than just “terrors.”
