These discovered her wickedness
That is, stripped them of all their substance: they took her sons and her daughters;
and carried them captive: and slew her with the sword;
put an end to the kingdom of Israel, or the ten tribes, and which was never recovered to this day: and she became famous among women;
or among the provinces, as the Targum; she became famous, or rather infamous, among other nations; was talked of for her sins, her whoredoms and idolatries, and the vengeance of God upon her for them; she became a byword and a proverb among the kingdoms of the world for her wickedness and her destruction: for they had executed judgment upon her;
that is, the Assyrians, who were the instruments in God's hand in doing justice to her, and inflicting his judgments on her, and for that she became famous.
