Treasury of Scripture

Dig you through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby.

Dig thou [heb] Dig for thee.

2 Kings 25:4
And the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between two walls, which is by the king's garden: (now the Chaldees were against the city round about:) and the king went the way toward the plain.

Jeremiah 39:2-4
And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up…









(5) Dig thou through the wall.--This is a sub sequent action, as shown by Ezekiel 12:7. The wall was probably of adobe, sun-dried brick, the common building material of the country, and there was, therefore, no great difficulty in digging through it; but this way of entering the house indicates something of stealth and secrecy. He was to carry forth his goods openly through his door during the day, and then to re-enter at evening, and secretly to carry forth those things which he would not otherwise be allowed to take away.
