Isaiah 17:14

_ _ eventide ... before morning — fulfilled to the letter in the destruction “before morning” of the vast host that “at eveningtide” was such a terror (“trouble”) to Judah; on the phrase see Psalms 90:6; Psalms 30:5.

_ _ he is not — namely, the enemy.

_ _ us — the Jews. A general declaration of the doom that awaits the foes of God’s people (Isaiah 54:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 17:12-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
