    Clarke's Commentary on Deuteronomy 28:36

    Can any thing be conceived more dreadful than the calamities threatened in these verses?

    Wesley's Notes on Deuteronomy 28:36

    28:36 Thy king - The calamity shall be both universal, which even thy king shall not be able to avoid, much less the subjects, who have far less advantage and opportunity for escape; and irrecoverable, because he who should protect or rescue them is lost with them, Lam 4:10. Wood and stone - So what formerly was their choice and delight now becomes their plague and misery. And this doubtless was the condition of many Israelites under the Assyrian and Balylonish captivities.
