Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What nation is this referring to?
יִשָּׂ֣א ה֩ עָלֶ֨יךָ גּ֤וֹי מֵרָחוֹק֙ מִקְצֵ֣ה הָאָ֔רֶץ כַּאֲשֶׁ֥ר יִדְאֶ֖ה הַנָּ֑שֶׁר גּ֕וֹי אֲשֶׁ֥ר לֹא־תִשְׁמַ֖ע לְשֹׁנֽוֹ׃
The LORD will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, which will swoop down like the eagle, a nation whose language you do not understand.
This is said to be a reference to the Roman leaders Vespasian and his son Titus, who came to destroy Jerusalem and imposed a terrible siege, whose effects are described in the following verses.
