The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleDeuteronomy 28:37
And thou shall become an astonishment…
nations, that shall hear of their overthrow and captivity, and that
shall see the miserable condition they are brought into:
a proverb and a byword among all nations whither the Lord shall lead
both for the wickedness committed by them, and for the ill usage
of them by the nations among whom they should be, as they were in the
Babylonish captivity; see (Jeremiah 24:9) ; and now are, it being common to
``do you think I am a Jew?''
``none but a Jew would have done such a thing.''
