Psalms 74:7

They have cast fire into your sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of your name to the ground.

7. Now let us hasten over the verses following after the destruction of Jerusalem, for the reason that they are both evident, and it doth not please me to tarry over the punishment even of enemies. "As if in a forest of trees with axes, they have cut down the doors thereof at once; with mattock and hammer they have thrown Her down" (ver. 6). That is, conspiring together, with firm determination, "with mattock and hammer" they have thrown Her down. "They have burned with fire Thy Sanctuary, they have defiled on the ground the Tabernacle of Thy name" (ver. 7).

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
