Text[edit]

You shall break them with a staff of iron; as the vessel of a potter you shall scatter them.

Rashi[edit]

You shall break them

You shall shatter them.

With a staff of iron

That is the sword.

You shall scatter them

You shall break them. And that is the language of niputz (carding) in all of scripture; earthenware that is broken into fine breakaways.

Ibn Ezra[edit]

You shall break them

...

With a staff of iron

The sword.

You shall scatter them

As opposed to: nations assemble.
