Verse 46. "He shalt plant the tabernacles" - He shall make a last stand in Judea, and there shall his power be smitten.
"He shall come to his end, and none shall help him" - All his confederate and tributary kingdoms, states, and provinces shall desert him and leave that government to come to a shameful end.
IN the interpretation of this chapter I have generally followed Bp.
Newton, in his most excellent Dissertations on the Prophecies, consulting other eminent authors occasionally.
From the beginning of the chapter to the end of ver. 30 all is very clear and plain, relative to the Grecian, Syrian, and Egyptian histories; from the thtrty-first verse to the end, the mode of interpretation is not so satisfactory, in its application to the times since Christ. Yet possibly these alone may be intended; though the whole might be, with considerable ease, applied to the remaining part of the Syrian and Epyptian history. It is a wonderful piece of prophecy, and of great utility to the cause of Divine revelation.
