Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 33:21

_ _ there — namely, in Jerusalem.

_ _ will be ... rivers — Jehovah will be as a broad river surrounding our city (compare Isaiah 19:6; Nahum 3:8), and this, too, a river of such a kind as no ship of war can pass (compare Isaiah 26:1). Jerusalem had not the advantage of a river; Jehovah will be as one to it, affording all the advantages, without any of the disadvantages of one.

_ _ galley with oars — war vessels of a long shape, and propelled by oars; merchant vessels were broader and carried sail.

_ _ gallant — same Hebrew word as for “glorious,” previously; “mighty” will suit both places; a ship of war is meant. No “mighty vessel” will dare to pass where the “mighty Lord” stands as our defense.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 33:13-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 33:21

There — In and about Zion. Rivers — Tho' we have nothing but a small and contemptible brook to defend us; yet God will be as sure a defence to us, as if we were surrounded with great rivers. No galley — No ships of the enemies shall be able to come into this river to annoy them.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 33:21

But there the glorious LORD [will be] to us a place (z) of broad rivers [and] streams; in which shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass through it.

(z) Let us be content with this small river of Shiloah and not desire the great streams and rivers, by which the enemies may bring in ships and destroy us.
