The prophet, in this chapter, is dealing, I. With the proud oppressors of his people at home, that abused their power, to pervert justice, whom he would reckon with for their tyranny, Isa. 10:1-4. II. With a threatening invader of his people from abroad, Sennacherib king of Assyria, concerning whom observe, 1. The commission given him to invade Judah, Isa. 10:5, 6. 2. His pride and insolence in the execution of that commission, Isa. 10:7-11, 13, 14. 3. A rebuke given to his haughtiness, and a threatening of his fall and ruin, when he had served the purposes for which God raised him up, Isa. 10:12; 15-19. 4. A promise of grace to the people of God, to enable them to bear up under the affliction, and to get good by it, Isa. 10:20-23. 5. Great encouragement given to them not to fear this threatening storm, but to hope that, though for the present all the country was put into a great consternation by it, yet it would end well, in the destruction of this formidable enemy, Isa. 10:24-34. And this is intended to quiet the minds of good people in reference to all the threatening efforts of the wrath of the church’s enemies. If God be for us, who can be against us? None to do us any harm.
