CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The burden of the word of the Lord - This is a new prophecy. It is directed both to Israel and Judah, though Israel alone is mentioned in this verse.

They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded.
and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
