Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 34:7

_ _ unicornsHebrew, reem: conveying the idea of loftiness, power, and pre-eminence (see on Job 39:9), in the Bible. At one time the image in the term answers to a reality in nature; at another it symbolizes an abstraction. The rhinoceros was the original type. The Arab rim is two-horned: it was the oryx (the leucoryx, antelope, bold and pugnacious); but when accident or artifice deprived it of one horn, the notion of the unicorn arose. Here is meant the portion of the Edomites which was strong and warlike.

_ _ come down — rather, “fall down,” slain [Lowth].

_ _ with them — with the “lambs and goats,” the less powerful Edomites (Isaiah 34:6).

_ _ bullocks ... bulls — the young and old Edomites: all classes.

_ _ dust — ground.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 34:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 34:7

The unicorns — It is confessed, this was a beast of great strength and fierceness; and it is used in this place to signify their princes and potentates, who shall be humbled and cast down. Them — With the lambs, and goats, and rams. Fatness — With the fat of the slain sacrifices, mingled with it.
