Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 37:29

_ _ tumult — insolence.

_ _ hook in ... nose — Like a wild beast led by a ring through the nose, he shall be forced back to his own country (compare Job 41:1, Job 41:2; Ezekiel 19:4; Ezekiel 29:4; Ezekiel 38:4). In a bas-relief of Khorsabad, captives are led before the king by a cord attached to a hook, or ring, passing through the under lip or the upper lip, and nose.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 37:21-38.

(u) Because Sennacherib showed himself as a devouring fish and furious beast, he uses these similarities to teach how he will take him and guide him.
