Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Habakkuk 2:10

_ _ Thou hast consulted shame ... by cutting off many — Maurer, more literally, “Thou hast consulted shame ... to destroy many,” that is, in consulting (determining) to cut off many, thou hast consulted shame to thy house.

_ _ sinned against thy soul — that is, against thyself; thou art the guilty cause of thine own ruin (Proverbs 8:36; Proverbs 20:2). They who wrong their neighbors, do much greater wrong to their own souls.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Habakkuk 2:5-14.
