And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

26:33 scatter you. There are at least seven recorded instances in the Old Testament when one or more of Israel’s tribes were ruled by other nations: (1) capture by the king of Mesopotamia (Judges 3:8); (2) capture by the Moabites (Judges 3:14); (3) capture by the king of Canaan (Judges 4:2); (4) control by Midianites (Judges 6:1); (5) capture by the Philistines (Judges 10:7; 13:1); (6) captivity and exile of the northern tribes into Assyria (II Kings 17:6) and (7) the Babylonian exile of Judah (II Chronicles 36:17-21). The ultimate captivity and exile, of course, was by the Romans, when the Jews were finally scattered into all the nations of the world (Luke 21:24) because of their rejection of Christ.
