As I noted earlier, it is artificial to try to distinguish in
Ch.26 between what N & what "the nations" will do. & the 2d statement
here is simply wrong.
I am not trying to be deliberately obtuse or sceptical in my
responses to comments on this. IMO it would be better to do some hard
thinking on the whole meaning of prophecy & fulfillment in Scripture
instead of trying to figure out subtle ways which allow one to hold on
to a straight prediction model of all prophecies.
