For I will no longer have pity on the people of the land,” declares the LORD. “I will give everyone into the hands of their neighbors and their king. They will devastate the land, and I will not rescue anyone from their hands.”
For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour's hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.
For I will no longer have pity on the inhabitants of this land, declares the LORD. Behold, I will cause each of them to fall into the hand of his neighbor, and each into the hand of his king, and they shall crush the land, and I will deliver none from their hand."
Likewise, I will no longer have pity on the people of the land,” says the LORD . “I will let them fall into each other’s hands and into the hands of their king. They will turn the land into a wilderness, and I will not rescue them.”
For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land,
saith the Lord
Or spare them; but cause his wrath to come upon them to the
uttermost, as it did at the time of Jerusalem's destruction by
the Romans; but, lo, I will deliver the men everyone into
his neighbour's hand;
this seems to refer to the factions and divisions among
themselves during the siege of Jerusalem, when multitudes fell
into the hands of the zealots, and heads of parties, and perished
by them: and into the hand of his king;
Vespasian the Roman emperor; the Jews having declared, long
before this time, that they had no king but Caesar, ( John 19:15 ) and now
into his hands they were delivered up: and they shall smite
that is, the Romans shall lay waste the land of Judea: and
out of their hand I will not deliver [them];
as formerly out of the hands of their neighbours, the
Philistines, Ammonites and out of the captivity of Babylon. It
denotes that their destruction would be an utter one; nor have
they been delivered yet, though it has been over 1900 years ago.
