Jer 51:19

“Jacob’s Portion.” God uses this title of Himself. Yahweh is the God of Israel; He is all they need, He is their portion. This name for God is also used in Jeremiah 10:16 (cp. Ps. 73:26).

“Before your very eyes.” That is, before the eyes of Israel. The subject has changed from Jeremiah 51:23, and the subject is plural and refers to Israel.

Jer 51:30

“her bars are broken.” The “bars” were strong wooden beams that were placed behind the doors of the gate so they could not be opened and could withstand pounding from the outside without giving way. Those bars were the origin of the shout “Bar the doors!” when an enemy would approach. “Her bars are broken” means that her gates can be easily opened, the city cannot withstand an attack.

“hissing.” Hissing in derision or disgust is common among humans, and it was a custom in the Old Testament world, which is why Babylon, a center of evil, would be hissed at when it was destroyed. Today we hiss at the villain in a movie or play.
