Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 19:7

_ _ paper-reeds — rather, pastures, literally, “places naked” of wood, and famed for rich herbage, on the banks of the Nile [Gesenius]. Compare Genesis 13:10; Deuteronomy 11:10. Horsley translates, “nakedness upon the river,” descriptive of the appearance of a river when its bottom is bare and its banks stripped of verdure by long drought: so Vulgate.

_ _ the brooks — the river.

_ _ mouth — rather, “the source” [Vulgate]. “Even close to the river’s side vegetation shall be so withered as to be scattered in the shape of powder by the wind” (English Version, “driven away”) [Horsley].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 19:1-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 19:7

Paper — reeds — These by a needle, or other fit instrument, were divided into thin and broad leaves, which being dried and fitted, were used at that time for writing; and consequently was a very good commodity. By brooks — And much more what was sown in more dry and unfruitful places.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 19:7

The paper reeds by the brooks, by the (g) mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no [more].

(g) The Hebrew word is mouth, by which they mean the spring out of which the water gushes as out of a mouth.
