come [bow'] from a far [merchaq]
country, ['erets] from the end [qatseh] of heaven, [shamayim] even
the LORD, [Yahovah] and the weapons [kaliy] of his indignation, [za`am]
to destroy [chabal] the whole land. ['erets] KJV-Interlinear
5 They are
coming from a far country From the farthest horizons, The Lord and His
instruments of indignation, To destroy the whole land. NASB
They, is a reference to the Lord and His host of armies, who are coming to destroy Babylon.
They come from a far country. And in our passage, which is in reference to the Second Advent as we know it, that far country is not on this planet, but heaven itself.
And the text is expanded, even from the end of heaven, even the Lord.
This is no earthly army, no earthly general or king, no earthly country or collection of countries.
The weapons of His indignation, is a reference to Bible doctrine, truth, righteousness, justice, Gods divine plan.
And the reason for His coming, is to destroy a land that is thoroughly corrupt, and has been getting progressively more and more corrupt over the time of all of human history.
The whole land, means a total and complete destruction of all that was and is evil. There will not be a single evil person remaining alive, as well as not a single earthly building or shrine or anything in which that man has placed his trust or pride, left standing.
