    The worst of the pagan - The most cruel and terrible of nations - the Chaldaeans.

    The pomp of the strong - Compare Leviticus 26:19 "The strong" are those who pride themselves in imaginary strength.

    Their holy places - What elsewhere is called "God's Holy place" is here "their holy places," because God disowns the profaned sanctuary. In the marginal rendering "they" must mean "the worst of the pagan."
