Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets
Or "surely" F6; it is the form of an oath, according to Jarchi Cyrus, when he took Babylon, ordered proclamation to be made that the inhabitants should keep within doors; and that whoever were found in the streets should be put to death F7, as doubtless many were: and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the Lord;
as Belshazzar and his guards were F8; see ( Daniel 5:30 ) ; compare with this ( Revelation 19:18 ) .
F6 (Nkl) "certe".
