CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible

"And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides.
And whenever the Ark set out, Moses would shout, "Arise, O LORD, and let your enemies be scattered! Let them flee before you!"
The ropes of death entangled me; floods of destruction swept over me.
You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations.
Don't you hear the uproar of your enemies? Don't you see that your arrogant enemies are rising up?
They will roar over their victims on that day of destruction like the roaring of the sea. If someone looks across the land, only darkness and distress will be seen; even the light will be darkened by clouds.
