Then will I cut off Israel out of the land I have given them,
&c.] Suffer them to be carried captive into other lands, as the ten tribes were into Assyria, and the two tribes to Babylon; which is called a plucking them up by the roots in ( 2 Chronicles 7:20 )
and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of
as it was when burnt by Nebuchadnezzar:
and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people;
both for their sins and for their miseries; see ( Deuteronomy 28:37 ) ( Jeremiah 24:9 ) : in ( 2 Chronicles 7:20 ) the house or temple is said to be made a proverb of.
