CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
23:6 But - Having in the foregoing verse s described the nature, and stability of that kingdom which God had by a sure covenant settled upon him and his seed; and especially, upon the Messiah, who was to be one of his posterity; he now describes the nature and miserable condition, of all the enemies of this holy and blessed kingdom. As thorns - Which men do not use to handle, but thrust them away. And so will God thrust away from himself, and from his people, and kingdom, all those who shall either secretly or openly set themselves against it.

The Truth of God
Covenanting According to the Purposes of God.
The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will remove from his Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.
My anger will be gone. If I find briers and thorns growing, I will attack them; I will burn them up--
Your people will be burned up completely, like thornbushes cut down and tossed in a fire.
"Son of man, do not fear them or their words. Don't be afraid even though their threats surround you like nettles and briers and stinging scorpions. Do not be dismayed by their dark scowls, even though they are rebels.
His enemies, tangled like thornbushes and staggering like drunks, will be burned up like dry stubble in a field.
