And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the
land springs of water
Such persons who have been like the parched earth, barren and unfruitful, or like the earth scorched with the sun, filled with a sense of divine wrath, and thirsting, like the dry earth, after the grace of God, Christ, and his righteousness, shall be comforted and refreshed, and filled with the grace of God: or such who have been scorched and parched with the heat of persecution, from the antichristian party, and have been thirsting after deliverance from it, shall now enjoy peace and prosperity: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay;
in kingdoms, cities, and towns, inhabited by men, comparable to dragons for their poison and cruelty; where the great red dragon Satan had his seat; and the Pagan emperors, and Papal powers, who have exercised the authority, power, and cruelty of the dragon, dwell; see ( Revelation 12:3 Revelation 12:4 Revelation 12:9 Revelation 12:15 Revelation 12:17 ) ( Revelation 13:11 Revelation 13:12 ) : [shall be] grass, with reeds and rushes;
persons shall spring up, partakers of the grace of God, who, for their number and flourishing estate, shall be like the green grass; and others, still more eminent for their gifts and usefulness, like reeds, or canes and rushes; see ( Isaiah 44:3 ) ( Revelation 9:4 ) .
