Isaiah 9:18

For wickedness burns as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the rising of smoke.
Read Chapter 9

Ephrem The Syrian

AD 373
Mary said to him, “How can this be, since no man has known me?” He said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.” Why did he not mention the Father’s name but instead the name of his Power and the name of the Holy Spirit? Because it was fitting that the Architect of the works [of creation] should come and raise up the house that had fallen and that the hovering Spirit should sanctify the buildings that were unclean. Thus, if the Progenitor entrusted the judgment that is to come to his [Son], it is clear that he accomplished the creation of humanity and its restoration through him as well. He was the live coal that had come to kindle the briars and thorns. He dwelt in the womb and cleansed it and sanctified the place of the birth pangs and the curses. - "Commentary on Tatian’s Diatessaron 25"

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
High. All shall witness the fall of Israel, (Calmet) like a forest on fire. (Haydock)

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