Treasury of Scripture

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

Isaiah 9:17
Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

Isaiah 13:18
Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.

Psalm 33:16
There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.









(30) Even the youths . . .--The second word implies a nearer approach to manhood than the first, the age when vigour is at its highest point.

Verse 30. - Shall faint... shall fall; rather, should even the youths faint and be weary, and should the young men utterly fall, yet they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, etc. The two clauses of ver. 30 are "concessive."
