Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 22:23

_ _ nail ... sure place — Large nails or pegs stood in ancient houses on which were suspended the ornaments of the family. The sense is: all that is valuable to the nation shall rest securely on him. In Ezra 9:8 “nail” is used of the large spike driven into the ground to fasten the cords of the tent to.

_ _ throne — resting-place to his family, as applied to Eliakim; but “throne,” in the strict sense, as applied to Messiah, the antitype (Luke 1:32, Luke 1:33).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 22:15-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 22:23

Fasten — I will establish the power in his hands. Sure place — In the strong walls, or solid timber, in the house. He shall be — By his prudent and righteous government he shall procure great glory, to all that have any relation to him.
