John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And they shall know that I am the Lord,.... The Egyptians shall know the Lord to be the true God, and acknowledge him to be omniscient and omnipotent, that should so exactly foretell their destruction, and accomplish it:

when I have set a fire in Egypt: a war there; the heat of battle, very devouring and consuming, as well as very grievous and terrible, as fire is. The Targum is,

"when I shall give (or set) people that are strong as fire against Egypt;'

the army of the Chaldeans:

and when all her helpers shall be destroyed; her auxiliaries, the neighbouring nations in alliance with them, before mentioned.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have set a fire in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.

Destroyed — The fire that consumes nations is of God's kindling: and when he sets fire to a kingdom, all they that go about to quench the fire, shall be consumed by it.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

They shall know; all that act, and all that suffer, in this tragedy, shall by the evidence of the things be enforced to own God’s hand, and ascribe justice, and truth, and glory to him.

A fire; that war, which like increasing fire consumeth all.

Shall be destroyed; the destruction of so many and powerful aids shall prove that it was God’s hand did it.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

8.The day of the Lord is near — The day when accounts shall be settled and punishment or reward meted out to the nations; a day of darkness to the wicked and rebellious, a day of triumph to the righteous (Ezekiel 7:7; Amos 5:8; Jeremiah 27). One of these times of divine settlement seemed near, and was near. (Compare Isaiah 2, 3, 13; Joel 2:1; Joel 2:12.)
