CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible

Then it will happen on that day that the Lord Will again recover the second time with His hand The remnant of His people, who will remain, From Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, And from the islands of the sea.
Therefore glorify the LORD in the east, The name of the LORD, the God of Israel, In the coastlands of the sea.
"Trust in the LORD forever, For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.
O LORD, be gracious to us; we have waited for You. Be their strength every morning, Our salvation also in the time of distress.
For the LORD is our judge, The LORD is our lawgiver, The LORD is our king; He will save us--
Behold, the Lord GOD will come with might, With His arm ruling for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him And His recompense before Him.
