“An Oracle Against Damascus,” lll, Isaiah 17:12) Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!  13) The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters:  But God Shall Rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.  14) And Behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not.  This is the portion of them that spoil (harm) us, and the lot of them that rob us.  Judges 5:31.

Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary – v12, Seas and mighty waters speak of chaos and death (8:7; Psalm 46:3).  v13, Chaff, which lacks life, value, and stability, was threshed and winnowed on windy mountains and hilltops.  When God Judges The Unrelenting, roaring seas—the nations that plundered God’s people—they will become mere tumbleweed rolling before The Whirlwind Of God’s Judgment.  v14, Sennacherib’s army would be destroyed between eventide and morning (37:36-38).

Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v12-14, The rage and force of the Assyrians resembled the mighty waters of the sea;  but when The God Of Israel Should Rebuke Them, they would flee like chaff, or like a rolling thing, before the whirlwind.  In the evening Jerusalem would be in trouble, because of the powerful invader, but before morning his army would be nearly cut off.  Happy Are Those Who Remember God As Their Salvation, And Rely on His Power And Grace.  The Trouble Of The Believers, And The Prosperity Of Their Enemies, Will Be Equally Short; While The Joy Of The Former (God’s Salvation, Power and Grace For His People), And The Destruction Of Those That Hate And Spoil (Harm) Them, Shall Last For Ever.
