What are the implications of "Ve'sham'mu Alehah Oyveichem"?


Ramban: This implies that, in spite of the fact that no land can match the beauty of Eretz Yisrael, after it will be destroyed it will become so desolate that no nation will succeed in settling in it. 1


Ramban: A fact that history has borne out. Refer also to 26:31:4:1.


Why does it say "va'Hashimosi Ani Es ha'Aretz"? The previous verse said "va'Hashimosi Es Mikdesheichem" without 'Ani'!


Moshav Zekenim: Eretz Yisrael was not as Kadosh as the Beis ha'Mikdash, and it is as if Hashem helped to destroy it. He did not help to destroy the Mikdash at all - "Heshiv Achor Yemino" (Eichah 2:3), "Hinei Omed Achar Kosleijnu" (Shir ha'Shirim 2:9).
