CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
2:6 Words - Accusations, threats, or whatever else a malicious heart can suggest to the tongue. Briars - Which usually run up among thorns, are a very fit emblem of the frowardness and keenness of sinners against God and his prophet. Scorpious - Malicious, revengeful men. They that will do any thing to purpose in the service of God, must not fear the faces of men.
Then locusts came from the smoke and descended on the earth, and they were given power to sting like scorpions.
They were told not to kill them but to torture them for five months with pain like the pain of a scorpion sting.
They had tails that stung like scorpions, and for five months they had the power to torment people.
2 Samuel 23:6
But the godless are like thorns to be thrown away, for they tear the hand that touches them.
2 Samuel 23:7
One must use iron tools to chop them down; they will be totally consumed by fire."
2 Kings 1:15
Then the angel of the LORD said to Elijah, "Go down with him, and don't be afraid of him." So Elijah got up and went with him to the king.
"I, yes I, am the one who comforts you. So why are you afraid of mere humans, who wither like the grass and disappear?
