Barnes' Notes on the Bible

The point of the sword - The threatening sword or terror; as in Genesis 3:24, "the flaming sword."

And their ruins be multiplied - literally, "to the multiplication of stumblingblocks," that is, so that the causes of their fall may be more numerous. Compare Jeremiah 46:16.

Made bright ... - Or,

Ah! It is prepared for a lightning-flash, Drawn for slaughter.
