Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 10:13

_ _ I am prudent — He ascribes his success to his own prudence, not to God’s providence.

_ _ removed the bounds — set aside old, and substituted new boundaries of kingdoms at will. A criminal act, as Jehovah Himself had appointed the boundaries of the nations (Deuteronomy 32:8).

_ _ treasures — “hoarded treasures” [Horsley].

_ _ put down ... inhabitants like, etc. — rather, “as a valiant man, I have brought down (from their seats) those seated” (namely, “on thrones”; as in Psalms 2:4; Psalms 29:10; Psalms 55:19). The Hebrew for “He that abideth,” is He that sitteth on a throne); otherwise, “I have brought down (as captives into Assyria, which lay lower than Judea; therefore ‘brought down,’ compare Isaiah 36:1, Isaiah 36:10), the inhabitants” [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 10:5-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 10:13

Removed — I have invaded their lands, and added them to my own dominions, Proverbs 22:28. Put down — Deprived of their former glory and power.
