This, a new vision, goes back to the closing of the times of the Gentiles and ushering in the day of the Lord.
Babylon, that held God's people in captivity, is judged first. Now that Jehovah is to reign, He must put down all power opposing Him, destroy all systems of government, pleasure, commerce, and idolatry, in fine, the whole world system. It shall never be rebuilt. This is Babylon—the tower and city of Babel were types.
At this point in prophetic chronology, "They shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land." This is also true of the ten tribes of Israel. The subject of this chapter continues through chapter 27 and includes judgment upon all nations of the prophetic earth.
