Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 21:6

_ _ Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth — God’s direction to Isaiah to set a watchman to “declare” what he sees. But as in Isaiah 21:10, Isaiah himself is represented as the one who “declared.” Horsley makes him the “watchman,” and translates, “Come, let him who standeth on the watchtower report what he seeth.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 21:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 21:6

Go set — This was now done only in a vision, but it signified what should be done really afterwards.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 21:6

For thus hath the (i) Lord said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.

(i) That is, in a vision by the spirit of prophecy.
