1) What does the description in line c describe? Gomorrah (and Sodom)? 
Moab and Ammon? NecessariIy both?

2) What is the force and extent of the preposition "k"? It seems to me 
that it means that Moab and Ammon will be like Sodom and Gomorrah, which 
(the latter) are nettle-swamps, etc. If so, how far does the "k" extend? 
Will Moab and Ammon be something like Sodom and Gomorrah? Exactly like? 
And does the comparison necessariIy imply that all three terms of line c 
(nettle-swamp, salt pit, wasteland forever) apply to Moab and Ammon?

Thanks,

Mark Joseph
