(3) Shall come unto her.--Better, Unto it (sc., the pasture) shall come shepherds with their flocks--i.e., the leaders and the armies of the invaders. The other verbs are in the past tense, the future being seen, as it were realised, They have pitched, they have pastured.

Every one in his place.--Literally, each on his hand, or perhaps, "they shall feed, each his hand," i.e., shall let it rove in plunder at will by the side of his own tent. The work of plunder was to go on everywhere. The imagery is drawn from the attack of a nomadic tribe on a richly-cultivated plain.
