CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
6:8 Remnant - It is the Lord that preserves a remnant, the enemies rage would destroy all.
If even a tenth--a remnant--survive, it will be invaded again and burned. But as a terebinth or oak tree leaves a stump when it is cut down, so Israel's stump will be a holy seed."
For I am with you and will save you," says the LORD. "I will completely destroy the nations where I have scattered you, but I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you, but with justice; I cannot let you go unpunished."
Of that remnant who fled to Egypt, hoping someday to return to Judah, there will be no survivors. Even though they long to return home, only a handful will do so."
Only a small number will escape death and return to Judah from Egypt. Then all those who came to Egypt will find out whose words are true--mine or theirs!
Parents will eat their own children, and children will eat their parents. I will punish you and scatter to the winds the few who survive.
The place will be littered with corpses, and you will know that I alone am the LORD.
The survivors who escape to the mountains will moan like doves, weeping for their sins.
