CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The Lord of hosts shall defend then - He alone is the sure trust of his Church.
Subdue with sling-stones - This was an ancient and powerful instrument in the hands of the Hebrews. See the note on Judges 20:16.
They shall drink - After the victory gained as above, thy people shall hold a feast, and drink and be filled with wine.

Arrows do not make it flee; slingstones are like chaff to it.
Then the Lord awoke as from sleep, as a warrior wakes from the stupor of wine.
"I will defend this city and save it, for my sake and for the sake of David my servant!"
"On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.
On that day the LORD will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the LORD going before them.
Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle.
