CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
His troops - The calamities which he had sent, and which are here represented as "armies" or "soldiers" to accomplish his work. It is not probable that he refers here to the bands of the Chaldeans and the Sabeans, that had robbed him of his property, but to the calamities that had come upon him, "as if" they were bands of robbers.
And raise up their way - As and army that is about to lay siege to a city, or that is marching to attack it, casts up a way of access to it, and thus obtains every facility to take it; see Isaiah 40:3, note; Isaiah 57:14, note.

My tabernacle - My tent; my dwelling.

"His arrows surround me. Without mercy He splits my kidneys open; He pours out my gall on the ground.
"On the right hand their brood arises; They thrust aside my feet and build up against me their ways of destruction.
