CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
7:18 The fly - The flies. So he calls these enemies, to imply their great numbers. In - In their extremity, where they go out into the sea.

Assyria - In the empire of Assyria, or Babylon; for these two were united into one empire, and therefore in scripture are promiscuously called sometimes by one title, and sometimes by the other.

They come from distant countries, from beyond the farthest horizons. They are the LORD's weapons to carry out his anger. With them he will destroy the whole land.
When I whistle to them, they will come running, for I have redeemed them. From the few who are left, they will grow as numerous as they were before.
