And the spoiler shall come upon every city
That is, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and his army. The Targum is, the spoilers, who came against and took every city of Moab, and wasted them. Josephus F14 makes particular mention of Nebuchadnezzar subduing the Ammonites and Moabites: and no city shall escape;
the spoiler, and destruction by him: the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed, as the
Lord hath spoken;
not only the cities, and the inhabitants of them; but the inhabitants of the valleys and plains, as the Targum paraphrases it, should be destroyed; and also the corn that grew upon them, and the flocks and herds that grazed there, exactly as the Lord had foretold.
