Isaiah 10:3

And what will you do in the day of punishment, and in the desolation which shall come from afar? to whom will you flee for help? and where will you leave your riches?
Read Chapter 10

Afar. When Salmanasar shall come from Ninive to destroy Samaria, to punish the people for their idolatry (Calmet) and oppressions. (Haydock) Glory. Golden calves, (Osee viii. 5., and x. 5.) or possessions, chap. ix. 8.

Gregory the Theologian

AD 390
“What shall we do in the day of visitation?” One of the prophets terrifies me [with this question], whether that of the righteous sentence of God against us or that upon the mountains and hills, of which we have heard. Whatever and whenever it may be, he will reason with us and oppose us and set before us those bitter accusers, which are our sins, contrasting our wrongdoings with our benefits, striking thought with thought, scrutinizing action with action and calling us to account for the image that has been blurred and spoiled by wickedness. He will finally lead us away self-convicted and self-condemned, no longer able to say that we are being unjustly treated—a thought that is able even here sometimes to console in their condemnation those who are suffering. - "On His Father’s Silence, Oration 16.8"


AD 387
[Christ] said to Peter, the prince of the apostles, “Simon, [son] of John, do you love me more than these?” He answered, “Lord, you know I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He asked him a second time, “Simon [son] of John, do you love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my sheep.” And he ordered him to feed his sheep a third time, and in Peter he enjoined this office on all of us, diligently to feed the sheep of the Lord, that on the day of his visitation we may, for our toil and watchfulness, receive what he promised us in the gospel, saying, Father, I wish that where I am, there also shall be my minister. Let us look to the promises and rewards; then in an attitude of faith we will more easily stand all our pains, walking as the Lord himself walked, who is the one promising the rewards. - "The Testament of Horsiesi 18"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
