Treasury of Scripture
Thus the Jews smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and slaughter, and destruction, and did what they would to those that hated them.
Psalm 18:34-40,47,48 He teaches my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by my arms...
Psalm 20:7,8 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God...
Psalm 149:6-9 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand...
2 Thessalonians 1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
Jeremiah 18:21 Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and pour out their blood by the force of the sword...
what they would. Heb. according to their will. The Chaldee paraphrast says that none appeared against the Jews but Amalekites only, who were infatuated, and had their hearts hardened, as Pharaoh's against Israel, to take up arms to their own destruction. Some had such an inveterate, implacable malice against the Jews, that Haman's fall and Mordecai's advancement, instead of convincing, seemed only to exasperate them the more. How have the most dreadful scourges ravaged a country, and yet the inhabitants are unmindful of the Almighty Disposer of events, and that the cause of his righteous displeasure is their continual provocation! Forty years long was he grieved with one generation, who learned not his ways, although daily fed and clothed by a miracle.
