And thou shall become an astonishment
To neighbouring nations, that shall hear of their overthrow and captivity, and that shall see the miserable condition they are brought into:
a proverb and a byword among all nations whither the Lord shall lead
both for the wickedness committed by them, and for the ill usage of them by the nations among whom they should be, as they were in the Babylonish captivity; see ( Jeremiah 24:9 ) ; and now are, it being common to say,
``do you think I am a Jew?''or,
``none but a Jew would have done such a thing.''
