(23) Ye shall pine away.--In the tumult, distress, and captivity of the approaching judgment there would be no opportunity for the outward display of grief; but all the more should it press upon them inwardly, and, according to the terrible threatening of Leviticus 26:39, they should "pine away in their iniquity" in their enemies' land. In the original the preposition is the same here as in Leviticus, "in your iniquity."
