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.
