Treasury of Scripture

And behold at evening trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

at evening-tide

Isaiah 10:28-32
He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he hath laid up his carriages: …

2 Kings 19:3,35
And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth…

Psalm 37:36
Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

the portion

Isaiah 33:1
Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.

Judges 5:31
So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.

Job 20:29
This is the portion of a wicked man from God, and the heritage appointed unto him by God.









(14) And behold at eveningtide trouble.--The words, though spoken in general terms, received a special fulfilment in the destruction of Sennacherib's army (Isaiah 37:36). Possibly the parallelism they present to Isaiah 17:11 may have led to the insertion of the oracle in this place.

Verse 14. - Behold at evening-tide trouble; rather, terror, as the word is elsewhere always translated (comp. 2 Kings 19:35, "It came to pass that night that the angel of the Lord went out," etc.). He is not (comp. 2 Kings 19:35, "They were all dead corpses"). That spoil us... that rob us (see 2 Kings 18:13-16).
