John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

He and his people with him,.... He and his army, consisting chiefly of Chaldeans; though there were of other nations among them, as were in his army when he besieged Jerusalem, as seems to be suggested in the next clause:

the terrible of the nations shall be brought to destroy the land; the Chaldeans, the most fierce, cruel, and terrible of all people, and others the most terrible that could be collected out of all nations under the yoke of the king of Babylon; and all of them terrible to the nations against whom they came, as now against Egypt to destroy it; see Habakkuk 1:6,

and they shall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain; go through the land with their drawn swords, and kill all they meet; and not put them up till they have quite depopulated the land, and filled it with dead carcasses.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

He; Nebuchadrezzar.

His people; his own subjects, not hired soldiers.

The terrible: this is the description of them, Habakkuk 1:7, a fierce and cruel people, as Psalms 137:8,9.

Shall be brought, by the hand of God, using means for that end, as before noted, Ezekiel 29:4.

Draw their swords against Egypt; readily, and with resolution not to sheath them till Egypt be filled with slain.
