Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 5:28

_ _ bent — ready for battle.

_ _ hoofs ... flint — The ancients did not shoe their horses: hence the value of hard hoofs for long marches.

_ _ wheels — of their chariots. The Assyrian army abounded in cavalry and chariots (Isaiah 22:6, Isaiah 22:7; Isaiah 36:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 5:18-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 5:28

Bent — Who are every way furnished and ready for my work, waiting only for my command. Flint — Because they shall not be broken or battered by the length or stonyness and ruggedness of the way. Whirlwind — For the swiftness of their march, and for the force and violence of their chariots in battle.
