2 Samuel 22:16 (a) The wrath of GOD is compared to His breath. No special effort is required to breathe. Wrath is a natural attribute of GOD which is continually manifested against sin and sinners. In anger the breath comes strong and vigorous. (See also Job 4:9; Psalm 18:15).

Isaiah 11:4 (b) The wrath of GOD is executed by the Holy Spirit. (See also Isaiah 40:7).

Isaiah 30:28, Isaiah 30:33 (b) The Holy Spirit is compared in these passages to a river. He is constantly operating. He is always in the divine channel. He is always bringing the purpose and plans of GOD into human hearts. (See also Ezekiel 47:5; John 7:38).

Isaiah 33:11 (a) Israel will destroy themselves by the way they live. Their sins and their daily activities will bring destruction upon them. (See this thought also in Hosea 13:9).

Ezekiel 37:9 (a) The breath also in this place is a type of the Holy Spirit. Breath is often associated with this Person, as when JESUS breathed on them and said, "Receive ye the Holy Spirit." (See also Job 33:4; Job 37:10; Job 41:21; Psalm 33:6).
