Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 38:9-20.


Isaiah 38:13

_ _ I reckoned ... that — rather, I composed (my mind, during the night, expecting relief in the “morning,” so Job 7:4): for (“that” is not, as in the English Version, to be supplied) as a lion He was breaking all my bones [Vitringa] (Job 10:16; Lamentations 3:10, Lamentations 3:11). The Hebrew, in Psalms 131:2, is rendered, “I quieted.” Or else, “I made myself like a lion (namely, in roaring, through pain), He was so breaking my bones!” Poets often compare great groaning to a lion’s roaring, so, Isaiah 38:14, he compares his groans to the sounds of other animals (Psalms 22:1) [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 38:9-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 38:13

I reckon — When I could not rest all the night even 'till morning, my thoughts were presaging that God would instantly break me to pieces, and the like thoughts followed me from morning 'till evening.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 38:13

I reckoned (l) till morning, [that], as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day [even] to night wilt thou make an end of me.

(l) Overnight I thought that I would live till morning, but my pangs in the night persuaded me the contrary: he shows the horror that the faithful have when they apprehend God's judgment against their sin.
