This Chapter Verse Commentaries:





I will bring distress; cast them into, and surround or besiege them with distress, calamities which shall greatly trouble and perplex.



Upon men; the chiefest among them, the richest, and who think themselves safest; the mighty men, as Zep_1:10,



like blind men, shall neither know what to do nor where to flee, neither be fit for counsel nor action.



Because they have sinned against the Lord; all this for their great sins against the Lord; these men of note have been as much greater in sin as in state above others, and shall be as much deeper in distress.



Their blood shall be poured out as dust; as freely, abundantly, and as contemptibly, as dust in the highway.



And their flesh as the dung; shall be spread as dung on the face of the earth to fatten and improve it; their life shall be of no more value than dust, their honour no more regarded than dung, and they shall be so used after death.
