O inhabitant of Aroer
Another city that belonged to Moab, situated on the border of it towards Ammon, near the river Arnon; (See Gill on Isaiah 17:2); stand by the way, and espy;
get to the road side where travellers pass, and look out for them: ask him that fleeth, and her that escapeth;
whether man or woman you see fleeing, having escaped the army of the Chaldeans: [and] say, what is done?
by the Chaldeans; ask what cities they have taken; what progress they have made; what is done to their cities, that they flee from them? tell all the particulars of things.
