CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And they - (the house of Judah , of whom he had said, He hath made them as the goodly horse in the battle) shall be as mighty men, trampling on the mire of the streets Micah had said, "she shall be a trampling, as the mire of the streets" Micah 7:10, and David, "I did stamp them as the mire of the street" 2 Samuel 22:43.

"He who grasps the bow will not stand his ground, The swift of foot will not escape, Nor will he who rides the horse save his life.
The remnant of Jacob Will be among the nations, Among many peoples Like a lion among the beasts of the forest, Like a young lion among flocks of sheep, Which, if he passes through, Tramples down and tears, And there is none to rescue.
