Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 19:10

_ _ in the purposes — rather, “the foundations,” that is, “the nobles shall be broken” or brought low: so Isaiah 3:1; Psalms 11:3; compare Isaiah 19:13, “The princes — the stay of the tribes. The Arabs call a prince “a pillar of the people” [Maurer]. “Their weaving-frames” [Horsley]. “Dykes” [Barnes].

_ _ all that make sluices, etc. — “makers of dams,” made to confine the waters which overflow from the Nile in artificial fish-ponds [Horsley]. “Makers of gain,” that is, the common people who have to earn their livelihood, as opposed to the “nobles” previously [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 19:1-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 19:10

Thereof — Of Egypt, or of the Egyptians. They shall lose their hopes; for the fishes in them shall die for want of water.
