(14) One against another.--The rendering answers to the Hebrew idiom, but that idiom, as in the margin, a man against his brother, has a force which is lacking in the English, and forms a transition from the symbol to the reality. The words point to what we should call the "crash" of a falling kingdom, when all bonds that keep society together are broken.
