Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 28:21

_ _ Perazim — In the valley of Rephaim (2 Samuel 5:18, 2 Samuel 5:20; 1 Chronicles 14:11), there Jehovah, by David, broke forth as waters do, and made a breach among the Philistines, David’s enemies, as Perazim means, expressing a sudden and complete overthrow.

_ _ Gibeon — (1 Chronicles 14:16; 2 Samuel 5:25, Margin); not Joshua’s victory (Joshua 10:10).

_ _ strange — as being against His own people; judgment is not what God delights in; it is, though necessary, yet strange to Him (Lamentations 3:33).

_ _ work — punishing the guilty (Isaiah 10:12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 28:14-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 28:21

Perazim — Where he fought against the Philistines, 2 Samuel 5:20. Gibeon — Where he fought against the Canaanites, Joshua 10:10, &c. and afterwards against the Philistines, 1 Chronicles 14:16. Strange work — For this work of bringing total destruction upon Israel, was contrary to the benignity of his own nature, and to the usual way of dealing with his people.

For the LORD shall rise as [on] mount (a) Perazim, he shall be angry as [in] the valley (b) of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

(a) When David overcame the Philistines, (2 Samuel 5:20; 1 Chronicles 14:11).
