Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 34:8

_ _ recompenses for the controversy of Zion — that is, the year when God will retaliate on those who have contended with Zion. Her controversy is His. Edom had thought to extend its borders by laying hold of its neighbor’s lands and has instigated Babylon to cruelty towards fallen Judah (Psalms 137:7; Ezekiel 36:5); therefore Edom shall suffer the same herself (Lamentations 4:21, Lamentations 4:22). The final winding up of the controversy between God and all enemies of Him and His people is also foreshadowed (Isaiah 61:2; Isaiah 63:4; Isaiah 66:14-16; Malachi 4:1, Malachi 4:3; 2 Thessalonians 1:7, 2 Thessalonians 1:8, 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 11:18; Revelation 18:20; Revelation 19:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 34:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

For — This is the time which God hath fixed, to avenge the cause of his persecuted people.
