CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
At that day shall a man look to his Maker - Instead of confiding in their strongly fortified places and armies, they shall look for aid and protection to the God that made them, and who alone can help them.

Now in that day the remnant of Israel, and those of the house of Jacob who have escaped, will never again rely on the one who struck them, but will truly rely on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel.
Afterward the sons of Israel will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king; and they will come trembling to the LORD and to His goodness in the last days.
"Come, let us return to the LORD. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us.
But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.
