Psalm 46:9 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

But their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken.
There he broke the flashing arrows, the shields and the swords, the weapons of war.
He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.
Every warrior's boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire.
This is what the LORD Almighty says: "See, I will break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might.
