And the destruction of the transgressors and of
sinners [shall be] together
Of the beast and false prophet, of the followers of antichrist, the man of sin, who are transgressors of the law of God, and sinners against the Lord; the destruction of these, or the breaking of them into shivers, as the word F15 signifies, see ( Revelation 2:27 ) will be at the time of Zion's redemption, and make a part of it; and it shall be all at once and together; these sinners will be all together consumed out of the earth, and these wicked antichristian ones will be no more in it, ( Psalms 104:35 ) ( Revelation 18:8 ) and they that forsake the Lord;
his word, his worship and ordinances; as the Papists have manifestly done, by setting up their own unwritten traditions against the word of God, by adulterating his ordinances, and introducing new ones, and by worshipping images of gold, silver, brass, and wood; wherefore they shall be consumed;
with the breath of Christ's mouth, and with the brightness of his coming, ( 2 Thessalonians 2:8 ) .
