Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 24:22

_ _ in the pit — rather, “for the pit” [Horsley]. “In the dungeon” [Maurer]. Image from captives thrust together into a dungeon.

_ _ prison — that is, as in a prison. This sheds light on the disputed passage, 1 Peter 3:19, where also the prison is figurative: The “shutting up” of the Jews in Jerusalem under Nebuchadnezzar, and again under Titus, was to be followed by a visitation of mercy “after many days” — seventy years in the case of the former — the time is not yet elapsed in the case of the latter. Horsley takes “visited” in a bad sense, namely, in wrath, as in Isaiah 26:14; compare Isaiah 29:6; the punishment being the heavier in the fact of the delay. Probably a double visitation is intended, deliverance to the elect, wrath to hardened unbelievers; as Isaiah 24:23 plainly contemplates judgments on proud sinners, symbolized by the “sun” and “moon.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 24:16-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 24:22

Gathered — By God's special providence, in order to their punishment. And thus the unbelieving Jews were generally gathered together at Jerusalem, to their solemn feast, when Titus came and besieged, and destroyed them. Shut up — As malefactors, which are taken in several places, are usually brought to one common prison. After — After the apostate Jews shall have been shut up in unbelief, and in great tribulations for many ages together, they shall be convinced of their sin in crucifying the Messiah, and brought home to God and Christ by true repentance.
