Verse 7. "They shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them" - If they escape the sword, they shall perish by the famine; if they escape the famine, they shall be led away captives. To escape will be impossible. It will be to them according to the proverb:-
Incidit in Scyllam, cupiens vitare Charybdim.
"Out of the scald, into the flame."
Verse 8. "They have committed a trespass" - They have prevaricated; they are the worst of sinners, and shall have the heaviest of punishments. Can men suppose that it is possible to hide even their dark hearts from God?
