Then will I leave thee upon the land
Like a fish that is drawn out of the waters with a net or hook, and laid on dry land, and left gasping and expiring, where it cannot long live: I will cast thee forth on the open field;
the same in different words, signifying that his army should fall in battle by the sword of the Cyreneans, or Chaldeans, or both, and be left on the surface of the earth unburied: and will cause all the fowls of the heavens to remain upon thee, and I
will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee;
which may be understood either literally of the fowls of the air, that should light upon the slain carcasses, and rest on them till they had satisfied themselves with their flesh; and of the beasts of the field that should gather about them from all parts, and fill themselves with them; see ( Revelation 19:17 Revelation 19:18 ) or figuratively of the soldiers of the enemy's army, that should plunder them, and enrich themselves with the spoil.
