For the Lord God of hosts - Note, Isaiah 1:9.
Shall make a consumption - The Hebrew of this verse might be rendered, 'for its destruction is completed, and is determined on; the Lord Yahweh of hosts will execute it in the midst of the land.' Our translation, however, expresses the force of the original. It means that the destruction was fixed in the mind or purpose of God, and would be certainly executed.

For the manner in which this passage is quoted by Paul, see the notes at Romans 9:27-28.
In the midst of all the land - That is, the land of Israel for the threatened judgment extended no further.

"And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate."
