Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 19:8

_ _ fishers — The Nile was famed for fish (Numbers 11:5); many would be thrown out of employment by the failure of fishes.

_ _ angle — a hook. Used in the “brooks” or canals, as the “net” was in “the waters” of the river itself.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 19:1-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 19:8

Mourn — Because they could catch no fish; which was a great loss to the people, whose common diet this was.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

The fishermen also shall (h) mourn, and all they that cast hook into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.
