25:3 And say to the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord GOD;
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou saidst, a Aha,
against my sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the
land of Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house
of Judah, when they went into captivity;
(a) Because you rejoiced when the enemy destroyed my city
25:4 Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the b men of the
east for a possession, and they shall set their c palaces
in thee, and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat
thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk.
(b) That is, to the Babylonians.
(c) They will chase you away, and take your gorgeous houses
to dwell in.
25:5 And I will make d Rabbah a stable for camels, and the
Ammonites a couchingplace for flocks: and ye shall know
that I [am] the LORD.
(d) Called also Philadelphin, which was the chief city of
the Ammonites and full of conveniences,
25:9 Therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the
cities, e from his cities [which are] on his frontiers,
the glory of the country, Bethjeshimoth, Baalmeon, and
(e) So that no power or strength should be able to resist
25:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch
out my hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the
f Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.
(f) Which were certain garrisons of Philistines by which
they often molested the Jews, of the Cherethims David
also had a guard, (2Sa 8:18).
