Therefore thus saith the Lord God
Because of their vain confidence, added to their perjury and perfidy: because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered;
their old sins, by committing new ones, both against the Lord, and against the king of Babylon: in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings
your sins do appear;
both in their religious and civil actions; in the worship of God, and in their covenants and agreements with men; their sins were exposed and manifest to all, not only to God, who was provoked thereby, but to men, to the nations round about; particularly to Nebuchadnezzar, who was enraged by them: because, I say, that they are come to remembrance;
both before the Lord, and the king of Babylon: ye shall be taken with the hand;
as easily as a bird is, when in the snare. The Targum is,
``ye shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon;''which is no doubt the sense of the passage.
