Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 26:22

_ _ I will also send wild beasts among you — This was one of the four judgments threatened (Ezekiel 14:21; see also 2 Kings 2:4).

_ _ your highways shall be desolate — Trade and commerce will be destroyed — freedom and safety will be gone — neither stranger nor native will be found on the roads (Isaiah 33:8). This is an exact picture of the present state of the Holy Land, which has long lain in a state of desolation, brought on by the sins of the ancient Jews.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
