And the multitude of all the nations - The Assyrians, and their allied hosts.
Shall be as a dream of a night vision - In a dream we seem to see the objects of which we think as really as when awake, and hence, they are called visions, and visions of the night Genesis 46:2; Job 4:13; Job 7:14; Daniel 2:28; Daniel 4:5; Daniel 7:1, Daniel 7:7, Daniel 7:13, Daniel 7:15. The specific idea here is not that of the "suddenness" with which objects seen in a dream appear and then vanish, but it is that which occurs in Isaiah 29:8, of one who dreams of eating and drinking, but who awakes, and is hungry and thirsty still. So it was with the Assyrian. He had set his heart on the wealth of Jerusalem. He had earnestly desired to possess that city - as a hungry man desires to satisfy the cravings of his appetite. But it would be like the vision of the night; and on that fatal morning on which he should awake from his fond dream Isaiah 37:36, he would find all his hopes dissipated, and the longcherished desire of his soul unsatisfied still.

Is any merry? let him sing psalms" (James 5:13). Therefore, common sense itself dictates, that as we are too sluggish, we must be stimulated by God to pray earnestly whenever the occasion requires. This David calls a time when God "may be found" (a seasonable time); because, as he declares in several other …

"And There is None that Calleth Upon Thy Name, that Stirreth up Himself to Take Hold on Thee,"
"He flies away like a dream, and they cannot find him; Even like a vision of the night he is chased away.
Like a dream when one awakes, O Lord, when aroused, You will despise their form.
At evening time, behold, there is terror! Before morning they are no more. Such will be the portion of those who plunder us And the lot of those who pillage us.
All the nations are as nothing before Him, They are regarded by Him as less than nothing and meaningless.
"Behold, all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonored; Those who contend with you will be as nothing and will perish.
"And now many nations have been assembled against you Who say, 'Let her be polluted, And let our eyes gloat over Zion.'
"But they do not know the thoughts of the LORD, And they do not understand His purpose; For He has gathered them like sheaves to the threshing floor.
