Ezekiel 38:4

_ _ turn thee back — as a refractory wild beast, which thinks to take its own way, but is bent by a superior power to turn on a course which must end in its destruction. Satan shall be, by overruling Providence, permitted to deceive them to their ruin (Revelation 20:7, Revelation 20:8).

_ _ hooks into thy jaws — (Ezekiel 29:4; 2 Kings 19:28).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 38:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 38:4

Handling swords — That is, very ready, expert and strong in using the sword.
