(18) Is but a light thing.--Will be a light thing (1Kings 16:31).

He will deliver the Moabites.--The contrary of Jehoram's expectation (2Kings 3:10; 2Kings 3:13).

Verse 18. - And this is but a light thing in the sight of the Lord. God, the Author of nature, has full control over nature, and it is an easy matter for him to produce at will any natural phenomena. It is otherwise when the stubborn element of the human will is brought into play. Then difficulty may arise. He will deliver the Moabites also into your hand. It would be better to translate, he will also deliver (see the Revised Version).
