* bring a nation.
Though the Chaldeans are frequently described under the figure
of an eagle, yet these verses especially predict the
desolations brought on the Jews by the Romans; who came from a
country far more distant than Chaldea; whose conquests were as
rapid as the eagle's flight, and whose standard bore this very
figure; who spake a language to which the Jews were then
entire strangers, being wholly unlike the Hebrew, of which the
Chaldee was merely a dialect; whose appearance and victories
were terrible; and whose yoke was a yoke of iron; and the
havoc which they made tremendous.
