Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 32:2

_ _ a man — rather, the man Christ [Lowth]; it is as “the Son of man” He is to reign, as it was as Son of man He suffered (Matthew 26:64; John 5:27; John 19:5). Not as Maurer explains, “every one of the princes shall be,” etc.

_ _ rivers — as refreshing as water and the cool shade are to the heated traveler (Isaiah 35:6, Isaiah 35:7; Isaiah 41:18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 32:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 32:2

A man — Each of his princes. A hiding place — Unto the people under their government. The wind — From the rage and violence of evil men. As rivers — No less refreshing. As the shadow — In a dry and scorched country, which is called weary, because it makes travellers weary; as death is called pale in other authors, because it makes mens faces pale.
