Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 10:7

_ _ meaneth not so — He is only thinking of his own schemes, while God is overruling them to His purposes.

_ _ think — intend. Sinners’ plans are no less culpable, though they by them unconsciously fulfil God’s designs (Psalms 76:10; Micah 4:12). So Joseph’s brethren (Genesis 50:20; Proverbs 16:4). The sinner’s motive, not the result (which depends on God), will be the test in judgment.

_ _ heart to destroy ... not a few — Sennacherib’s ambition was not confined to Judea. His plan was also to conquer Egypt and Ethiopia (Isaiah 20:1-6; Zechariah 1:15).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 10:5-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 10:7

Howbeit — He doth not design the execution of my will, but only to enlarge his own empire. Which is seasonably added, to justify God in his judgments threatened to the Assyrian. To cut off — To sacrifice multitudes of people to his own ambition and covetousness.

Isaiah 36:18-20 [Beware] lest Hezekiah persuade you, saying, The LORD will deliver us. Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria? ...
