They shall fall by the sword
As Saul, his sons, and mighty men, did, ( 1 Samuel 31:4-6 ) ; or, "they shall make him pour out" F21; that is, his blood, "by the hands" or "[means] of the sword"; meaning either some principal enemy, as Saul in particular, or everyone of his enemies; who should be thrust with the sword, their blood let out, and they slain: so antichrist, the enemy of David's son, will be put to death in this manner, ( Revelation 13:10 ) ;
they shall be a portion for foxes;
falling in desolate places where foxes run, and so become the food of them, and have no other burial. The foxes hunt after dead carcasses, and will find them out where they are, in holes and ditches; as appears from the case of Aristomenes, related by Pausanias F23: so the followers of antichrist, their flesh will be eaten by the fowls of heaven, ( Revelation 19:17 Revelation 19:18 ) .
