CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
34:9 The land - Idumea shall be dealt with, as Sodom and Gomorrah were.
They will exclaim, 'The whole land is devastated by sulfur and salt. It is a wasteland with nothing planted and nothing growing, not even a blade of grass. It is like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the LORD destroyed in his intense anger.'
He will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked, punishing them with scorching winds.
Topheth--the place of burning--has long been ready for the Assyrian king; the pyre is piled high with wood. The breath of the LORD, like fire from a volcano, will set it ablaze.
For I have sworn by my own name," says the LORD, "that Bozrah will become an object of horror and a heap of ruins; it will be mocked and cursed. All its towns and villages will be desolate forever."
