16 They that see thee shall hnarrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying,
That ||opened not the house of his prisoners?
Lie in glory, every one kin his own house.
And as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword,
That go down to gthe stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
20 lThou shalt not be joined with them in burial,
Because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people:
mThe seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.
21 Prepare slaughter for his children nfor the iniquity of their fathers;
oThat they do not rise, nor possess the land,
Nor fill the face of the world with cities.
Or, did not let his prisoners loose homeward?
