CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
At evening-tide trouble - In the time of evening - that is, in the night.
Before the morning he is not - That is, he is destroyed. This is strikingly descriptive of the destruction of the army of Sennacherib on that fatal night when the angel of the Lord killed 185,000 men (see the note at Isaiah 37:36).

And the multitude of all the nations who wage war against Ariel, Even all who wage war against her and her stronghold, and who distress her, Will be like a dream, a vision of the night.
Your heart will meditate on terror: "Where is he who counts? Where is he who weighs? Where is he who counts the towers?"
He has cast the lot for them, And His hand has divided it to them by line. They shall possess it forever; From generation to generation they will dwell in it.
"You will seek those who quarrel with you, but will not find them, Those who war with you will be as nothing and non-existent.
