Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 24:2

_ _ as with the people, so with the priest — All alike shall share the same calamity: no favored class shall escape (compare Ezekiel 7:12, Ezekiel 7:13; Hosea 4:9; Revelation 6:15).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 24:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 24:2

It shall be — The approaching calamity shall be universal, without any distinction of persons or ranks; the priests themselves having been partakers of the peoples sins, shall also partake with them in their plagues. The seller — The purchaser of lands shall have no more left than he that hath sold all his patrimony; and all persons shall be made equal in beggary and slavery.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 24:2

And it shall be, as with the people, so with the (b) priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of interest, so with the giver of interest to him.

(b) Because this was a name of dignity it was also applied to them who were not of Aaron's family, and so signifies also a man of dignity, as in (2 Samuel 8:18; 2 Samuel 20:25; 1 Chronicles 18:17) and by these words the prophet signifies a horrible confusion, where there will be neither religion, order nor policy, (Hosea 4:9).
