Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 32:9-20.


Isaiah 32:14

_ _ palaces — most applicable to Jerusalem (see on Isaiah 32:13).

_ _ multitude ... left — the noisy din of the city, that is, the city with its noisy multitude shall lie forsaken [Maurer].

_ _ forts — rather, “Ophel” (that is, the mound), the term applied specially to the declivity on the east of Zion, surrounded with its own wall (2 Chronicles 27:3; 2 Chronicles 33:14; 2 Kings 5:24), and furnished with “towers” (or watchtowers), perhaps referred to here (Nehemiah 3:26, Nehemiah 3:27).

_ _ for ever — limited by thee, “until,” etc., Isaiah 32:15, for a long time.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 32:9-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 32:14

Forsaken — Of God, and given up into their enemies hands. A joy — Desolate places, in which wild asses delight to be.
