Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 14:9

_ _ their defence is departedHebrew, “their shadow.” The Sultan of Turkey and the Shah of Persia are called “the shadow of God,” “the refuge of the world.” So that the meaning of the clause, “their defence is departed from them,” is, that the favor of God was now lost to those whose iniquities were full (Genesis 15:16), and transferred to the Israelites.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 14:5-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 14:9

Bread — We shall destroy them as easily as we eat our bread. Their defence — Their conduct and courage, and especially God, who was pleased to afford them his protection 'till their iniquities were full, is utterly departed from them, and hath given them up as a prey to us. With us — By his special grace and almighty power, to save us from them and all our enemies. Only rebel not against the Lord — Nothing can ruin sinners but their own rebellion. If God leaves them, 'tis because they drive him from them, and they die, because they will die.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

defence:
Heb. shadow, Tzillam, a metaphor highly expressive of protection and support in the sultry eastern countries. (See the parallel passages.)

"May the shadow of thy prosperity be spread over the heads of thy well-wishers." And in an elegant distich, "May your protection never be removed from my head; may God extend your shadow (zullikem) eternally."
