    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 35:6

    Blood shall pursue thee - Thou lovest blood, and thou shalt have blood. It is said that Cyrus and two hundred thousand men were slain in an ambush by Thomyris, queen of the Scythians, and that she cut ok his head, and threw it into a vessel filled with blood, with this severe sarcasm: -

    Satia te sanguine quem sitisti, Cyre.

    "O Cyrus, now satisfy thyself with blood."

    Hence, the figure: -

    "Sarcasmus, with this biting taunt doth kill:

    Cyrus, thy thirst was blood, now drink thy fill."

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 35:6
