Ezekiel 16:40

Ezekiel 16:40

They shall also bring up a company against thee
An army, so the Targum; the Chaldean army: and they shall stone thee with stones:
cast out of their engines and slings, by which they battered the walls, as well as killed the inhabitants; and so the Targum renders it, with sling stones; the allusion is to the stoning of adulterous persons, ( Deuteronomy 22:24 ) ( John 8:5 ) ; and thrust thee through with their swords;
such as attempted to escape out of the city, or fell into the hands of the enemy when it was taken, were slain with the sword.
