as there must needs be, the sun, moon, and stars, and all the lights of heaven, being darkened above: there seems to be an allusion to the thick darkness that was formerly over the land of Egypt; and this is a figure and representation of that darkness that shall be in the kingdom of the beast, or spiritual Egypt, yet to come; see ( Exodus 10:21 ) ( Revelation 16:10 ) . The Targum is, ``tribulation as darkness shall cover thy land.''
