Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 33:20

_ _ solemnities — solemn assemblies at the great feasts (see on Isaiah 30:29; see on Psalms 42:4; see on Psalms 48:12).

_ _ not ... taken down ... removed — image from captives “removed” from their land (Isaiah 36:17). There shall be no more “taking away” to an enemy’s land. Or else, from nomads living in shifting tents. The saints, who sojourned once in tabernacles as pilgrims, shall have a “building of God — eternal in the heavens” (2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:9, Hebrews 11:10; compare Isaiah 54:2).

_ _ stakes — driven into the ground; to these the “cords” were fastened. Christ’s Church shall never fall (Matthew 16:18). So individual believers (Revelation 3:12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 33:13-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 33:20

Look upon — Contemplate Zion's glorious and peculiar privileges. Solemnities — This was the chief part of Zion's glory, that God was solemnly worshipped, and the solemn assemblies and feasts kept in her. Quiet — This was but imperfectly fulfilled in the literal Zion; but clearly and fully in the mystical Zion, the church of God, in the times of the gospel.
