* And I.
For the enormous idolatries and cruelties of Judah and
Jerusalem, Jehovah determined to gather together the
surrounding nations, both those with whom they had formed
alliances, as the Egyptians and Assyrians, and such as had
always been inimical to them, as Edom, Ammon, Moab, and
Philistia, to inflict, or to witness, his judgments upon them.
Having exposed their enormous crimes to view, He would pass
sentence upon them: He would give Jerusalem into the hands of
the Chaldeans, who would destroy the city and temple which
they had polluted; level their cities and high places with the
ground; slay, plunder, and enslave the people.
