10 For in
this mountain [har] shall the hand [yad] of the
LORD [Y@hovah] rest [nuwach], and Moab [Mow'ab] shall be
trodden down [duwsh] under him, even as straw [mathben] is trodden down [duwsh] for
the dunghill [b@mow] [madmenah] [mayim]. KJV-Interlinear
10 For the hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain, and Moab
shall be trampled down in his place, as straw is trampled down in a dunghill. ESV
A pile of manure is the final existence of the enemies of God as stated here.
The hand of God often times symbolizes the protection, defense and actions of God.
And the mountain is of course a reference to Zion, which is the dwelling place of God. God is truth therefore, the dwelling of God is truth, and is portrayed in the content of the scriptures. And if a person learns truth, then they by default, reside with God within His dwelling, namely doctrine resident in the soul.
Moab is a general reference to the enemies of God, referring to all enemies.
They will be trodden down or trampled, as is the barn yard debris of straw and hay and manure, which is eventually hauled off to the fields or pushed off to the side and burned as waste.
We have many colorful phrases for this type of pile, which I will leave to your own imagination. Noting that often times colorful phrases are quite proper and certainly Biblical.
And that is the place where the enemies of God will be left.
And, not only will they be destroyed, they will be destroyed in their place, which means that no matter where they are in the world, they will fall right there in their destruction.
They will not have to go to Jerusalem to be destroyed, Christ will destroy them right in their own homes, in their own cities, in their own nations, in their own land.
Gods reach is not limited, and Gods judgment will be thorough and complete.
