Verse 10
Moreover - Nay, I will not only deprive you of your mirth, but of those things that are necessary for you, as necessary as bread and light, the millstone shall not move, you shall not have the light so much as of a candle.

Verse 20
Of Uz - Some part of Arabia Petraea, near to Idumaea. Of the Philistines - Uzzah, Ekron, Ashdod, and Askelon, were four of their cities, the fifth which was Gath is not here named. For before this time it was destroyed, either by Psammeticus, father to Pharaoh Necho, or by Tartan, captain general to Sargon, king of Assyria, of whom read, Isaiah 20:1, that he took Ashdod, which may be the reason that here mention is made of no more than the remnant of Ashdod.

Tema - Tema descended from Ishmael, Genesis 25:15, his posterity inhabited in Arabia, Isaiah 21:13,14, where they are joined with those of Dedan. Buz - Buz was one of the posterity of Nahor, Genesis 22:21. These were people mixed with the Saracens or Arabians.

Zimri - Those descended from Zimran, Abraham's son by Keturah, Genesis 25:2. Elam - The Persians. The Medes - The Medes came from Madai the son of Japhet.

Verse 26
The north - All under the government of the Chaldeans. Of Sheshach - And the king of Babylon, who was last of all to drink of this cup of the Lord's fury.

Verse 34
Shepherds - Shepherds and the principal of the flock, in this place mean civil rulers. A pleasant vessel - Like a crystal glass, or some delicate vessel, which breaks in pieces and cannot again be set together.

Verse 38
Because - The effects of this rising up of God out of his covert is the desolation of the land through the fierceness of the enemy, caused by the fierce anger of God.
