Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 30:32

_ _ grounded — rather, “decreed,” “appointed” [Maurer].

_ _ staff — the avenging rod.

_ _ him — the Assyrian; type of all God’s enemies in every age. Margin and Maurer construe, “Every passing through (infliction, Isaiah 28:15) of the appointed rod, which, etc., shall be with tabrets,” that is, accompanied with joy on the part of the rescued peoples.

_ _ battles of shaking — that is, shock of battles (Isaiah 19:16; compare “sift ... sieve,” Isaiah 30:28).

_ _ with it — namely, Assyria.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 30:27-33.

With harps — Their destruction shall be celebrated by God's people, with joy and musick, and songs of praise. Of shaking — Or, shaking of the hand, of which kind of shaking this Hebrew word is constantly used. God will fight against them, and destroy them by his own hand. With it — With the army of the Assyrians.
