And many among them
Not all, though the greater part; for Christ was set for the falling and rising of many in Israel, ( Luke 2:34 ) : shall stumble, and fall, and be broken:
stumble at Christ, the stumbling stone; fall by unbelief into other sins and punishment, and be broken in pieces by this stone, ( Matthew 21:44 ) : and be snared, and be taken;
and so die in their sins, and perish eternally. The allusion is to birds being taken in a snare or trap, or with bird lime, and therein or thereby held and detained.
