42 O that thou hadst known, at least in this thy day - After
thou hast neglected so many. Thy day - The day wherein God still offers
thee his blessings.
43 Thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee around
- All this was exactly performed by Titus, the Roman general.
44 And thy children within thee - All the Jews were at that time gathered
together, it being the time of the passover. They shall not leave in thee
one stone upon another - Only three towers were left standing for a time,
to show the former strength and magnificence of the place. But these likewise
were afterward levelled with the ground.
45 Mt 21:12; Mr 11:11.
46 Isa 56:7.
