See Sandy's Travels; Vitringa on the place; Bp. Newton on the Prophecies, Dissert. xi.

it will be the same for priest as for people, for the master as for his servant, for the mistress as for her servant, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor.
The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the earth.
In that day people will ridicule you; they will taunt you with this mournful song: 'We are utterly ruined; my people's possession is divided up. He takes it from me! He assigns our fields to traitors.'"
