CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
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: -

"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."

and the most ruthless of foreign nations cut it down and left it. Its boughs fell on the mountains and in all the valleys; its branches lay broken in all the ravines of the land. All the nations of the earth came out from under its shade and left it.
I will throw you on the land and hurl you on the open field. I will let all the birds of the sky settle on you and all the animals of the wild gorge themselves on you.
I will spread your flesh on the mountains and fill the valleys with your remains.
I will make Mount Seir a desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go.
On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals.
