(ver. 1) and a preface
demanding attention, ver. 2.
II. Warning given of desolating judgments hastening upon the
kingdoms of Israel and Judah (ver. 3,
4), and all for sin, ver.
5. III. The particulars of the destruction specified,
ver. 6, 7. IV. The
greatness of the destruction illustrated, 1. By the prophet's
sorrow for it, ver. 8, 9.
