(13) Instruments of death.--That is, deadly weapons.

Against the persecutors.--Literally, for those burning; so LXX. and Vulg. The meaning appears to be, "His arrows he makes into fiery arrows"--i.e., tips them with fire, by wrapping them in burning tow. Latin, malleoli. (Comp. Ephesians 6:16, with Note, in New Testament Commentary.) Milton's "rattling storm of arrows barb'd with fire," refers to the same custom.

Verse 13. - He hath prepared for him the instruments of death. These are probably not the sword and the bow, but the "arrows" of the next clause. They are prepared "for him," i.e. for the wicked man. He ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors; rather, he maketh his arrows to be fiery ones. Hengstenberg notes that "in sieges it was customary to wrap inflammable matter round arrows, and to shoot them after it had been kindled" (compare the, fiery darts" of St. Paul, Ephesians 6:16).
