New Defender's Study Bible Notes
45:3 O most mighty. After the wedding, the King, who is actually “the Mighty God” (Isaiah 9:6) must triumph over His enemies, and the Bride must be prepared for the victorious wedding supper. The “sword upon thy thigh” will become the “sharp sword” that goes forth “out of His mouth” to “smite the nations” (Revelation 19:15). With a sword no longer on His thigh, it will be replaced by His mighty name, to which every knee must bow. “And He hath...on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” (Revelation 19:16).
