SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:25 Y asolaron las ciudades, y en todas las heredades fértiles echó cada uno su piedra, y las llenaron; taparon también todas las fuentes de las aguas, y derribaron todos los buenos árboles; hasta que en Kir-hareset solamente dejaron sus piedras; porque los honderos la cercaron, y la hirieron.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 3:25 Verse 25. On every good piece of land] On all cultivated ground, and especially fields that were sown.
Only in Kir-haraseth] This was the royal city of the Moabites, and, as we learn from Scripture, exceedingly strong; (see Isaiah xvi. 7, 11;) so that it is probable the confederate armies could not easily reduce it. The slingers, we are informed, went about the wall, and smote all the men that appeared on it, while no doubt the besieging army was employed in sapping the foundations.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 25. And they beat down the cities , etc.] Demolished the walls of them, and houses in them, wherever they came: and on every good piece of land cast every man his stone, and filled it ; which they had taken out of the walls and houses they pulled down; or which they picked up in the highway, as they passed along, being a stony country; or which being laid in heaps, gathered out of the fields, they took and scattered them all over them: and they stopped all the wells of water ; with stones and dirt: and felled all the good trees ; fruit bearing ones; (see Gill on “ 2 Kings 3:19”), only in Kirharaseth left they the stones thereof ; not able to demolish it, it being a strong fortified city, the principal of the kingdom, and into which the king of Moab had thrown himself, and the remains of his forces; of which (see Isaiah 16:7,10), howbeit, the slingers went about it, and smote it ; smote the soldiers that appeared upon the walls of it; though Kimchi, and other Jewish writers, understand it of engineers, who cast out large stones from a sort of machines then in use, to batter down and break through the walls of cities.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 20-27 - It is a blessing to be favoured with the company of those who have power with God, and can prevail by their prayers. A kingdom may be upheld and prosper, in consequence of the fervent prayers of those wh are dear to God. May we place our highest regard upon such as are mos precious in his account. When sinners are saying Peace, peace destruction comes upon them: despair will follow their mad presumption In Satan's service and at his suggestion, such horrid deeds have bee done, as cause the natural feelings of the heart to shudder; like the king of Moab's sacrificing his son. It is well not to urge the worst of men to extremities; we should rather leave them to the judgment of God __________________________________________________________________
