A sword [is] upon their horses, and upon their chariots
Upon the horsemen, and those that rode in chariots; upon the whole cavalry, which should fall into the enemies' hands, and be cut to pieces; see ( Revelation 19:18 ) ; and upon all the mingled people that [are] in the midst of her;
those of other nations that sojourned in Babylon, or came thither for merchandise; the word having, as Kimchi observes, such a signification; or rather her auxiliaries, troops consisting of other people that were her allies, or in her pay and service: and they shall become as women;
timorous, faint hearted, quite dispirited, unable to act, or defend themselves: a sword [is] upon her treasures, and they shall be robbed;
or they that slay with the sword, as the Targum, the soldiers, shall seize upon her treasures, and plunder them: thus should she be exhausted of men and money, and become utterly desolate.
