As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

31:5 As birds flying. One might interpret this in terms of the end-time invasion of Israel by the Beast, with the city being delivered by armies flying from heaven with the returning Christ (Revelation 19:14). The near fulfillment, however, would seem to be when the angel of the Lord destroyed the army of the Assyrians who were besieging Jerusalem (II Kings 19:35).
