SEV Biblia, Chapter 31:4 Porque el SEÑOR me dijo a mí de esta manera: Como el león, y el cachorro del león, brama sobre su presa, contra el cual, si se llega cuadrilla de pastores, no temerá por sus voces, ni se acobardará por el tropel de ellos; así el SEÑOR de los ejércitos descenderá a pelear por el Monte de Sion, y por su collado.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 31:4 Verse 4. Like as the lion] This comparison is exactly in the spirit and manner, and very nearly approaching to the expression, of Homer.

As the bold lion, mountain-bred, now long Famished, with courage and with hunger stung Attempts the thronged fold: him nought appals, Though dogs and armed shepherds stand in guard Collected; he nathless undaunted springs O'er the high fence, and rends the trembling prey; Or, rushing onward, in his breast receives The well-aimed spear.
Of metaphors, allegories, and comparisons of the Hebrew poets, in which the Divine nature and attributes are represented under images taken from brutes and other low objects; of their effect, their sublimity, and the causes of it; see De Sac. Poes. Heb., Praelect. xvi. sub. fin.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The sin and folly of seeking help from Egypt. (Is. 31:1-5) God's car for Jerusalem. (Is. 31:6-9)
Is. 31:1-5 God will oppose the help sought from workers of iniquity Sinners may be convicted of folly by plain and self-evident truths which they cannot deny, but will not believe. There is no escaping the judgments of God; and evil pursues sinners. The Lord of hosts will com down to fight for Mount Zion. The Lion of the tribe of Judah wil appear for the defence of his church. And as birds hovering over their young ones to protect them, with such compassion and affection will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem. He will so defend it, as to secure it safety.
Is. 31:6-9 They have been backsliding children, yet children; let the return, and their backslidings shall be healed, though they have sun deep into misery, and cannot easily recover. Many make an idol of their silver and gold, and by the love of that are drawn from God; but thos who turn to God, will be ready to part with it. Then, when they have cast away their idols, shall the Assyrian fall by the sword of a angel, who strikes more strongly than a mighty man, yet more secretl than a mean man. God can make the stoutest heart to tremble. But if we keep up the fire of holy love and devotion in our hearts and houses, we may depend upon God to protect us and them __________________________________________________________________
