Therefore thus saith the Lord God
Confirming what he had before bid the prophet say, ( Ezekiel 13:11 ) ; I will even rend [it] with a stormy wind in my fury;
stormy winds sometimes rend rocks asunder, ( 1 Kings 19:11 ) ; and much more feeble tottering walls; what is before ascribed to the stormy wind is said to be done here by the Lord himself, making use of that as an instrument; stormy winds fulfil his word, ( Psalms 148:8 ) ; the cause of which is his wrath, which made the dispensation, or the invasion of the Chaldean army, the more terrible; and this is mentioned in all the following clauses: and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great
hailstones in [my] fury to consume [it];
which, coming from the Lord, and attended with his wrath and fury, must needs bring on utter ruin and destruction. The whole is paraphrased by the Targum thus,
``and I will bring a mighty king with the force of tempests; and a destroying people as a prevailing rain in my fury shall come; and kings, who were powerful as hailstones, in wrath to consume.''
