Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 10:14

_ _ nest — implying the ease with which he carried off all before him.

_ _ left — by the parent bird.

_ _ none ... moved ... wing — image from an angry bird resisting the robbery of its “nest.”

_ _ peeped — chirped even low (Isaiah 8:19). No resistance was offered me, of deed, or even word.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 10:5-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 10:14

Eggs — Which the dam left in her nest. Gathered — All the riches of the earth. An hyperbole not unusual in the mouths of such persons. Peeped — As birds do, which, when they see the robbing of their nest, express their grief and anger, by hovering about them, and by mournful cries.
