The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleIsaiah 37:23
Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed?
&c.] A creature like
thyself? no, but a God, and not one like the gods of the nations, the
idols of wood and stone, but the living God:
and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice?
alluding to Rabshakeh's
crying with a loud voice, (Isaiah 36:13) :
and lifted up thine eyes on high?
as proud and haughty persons do,
disdaining to look upon those they treat with contempt:
even against the Holy One of Israel;
that is, Israel's God, and will
protect him; "a Holy One", and of purer eyes than to behold with
pleasure such a proud blaspheming creature, and cannot look upon him
but with indignation; for against such he sets himself; these he
resists, pulls down, and destroys.
