“For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:10 As thorns - They shall be like thorns easily burnt, and like thorns folded together which burn together, and help to destroy each other. As drunkards - As men drunken, and unable to help themselves, so the Assyrians drunk with pleasure and pride, shall be surprised, and easily overthrown.
For while they be folden together as thornes, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be deuoured as stubble fully drie.
