“Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?”
King James Version (KJV)
10:9 Is not - Have not I conquered one place as well as another, the stronger as well as the weaker? Samaria - Or, shall not Samaria be as Damascus? Shall I not take that, as I have done this city?
10:10 The kingdoms - Which worshipped their own idols, and vainly imagined that they could protect them from my power. He calls the gods of the nations, not excepting Jerusalem, idols, by way of contempt, because none of them could deliver their people out of his hands, and because he judged them to be but petty gods, far inferior to the sun, which was the god of the Assyrians.
10:12 Wherefore - Because of this impudent blasphemy. His work - Of chastising his people so long as he sees fit. Looks - His insolent words and carriage.
10:13 Removed - I have invaded their lands, and added them to my own dominions, #Prov 22:28|. Put down - Deprived of their former glory and power.
