This [city] shall not be your cauldron
It was one, as in ( Ezekiel 11:7 ) ; but not theirs; it was the cauldron for the slain, for the dead, but not the living: neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst of it;
or, "and ye shall be"
F7 or, "but ye shall be"; the negative is understood, and rightly supplied by us; though the Targum renders it without it,
``but ye shall be in the midst of it, as flesh that is boiled in the midst of a pot:''[but] I will judge you in the border of Israel;
this is repeated, that they might take notice of it, and to assure them that so it would be.
F7 (wyht Mtaw) "et vos critis", Montanus, Cocceius.
