Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 7:23

_ _ where there were, etc. — where up to that time there was so valuable a vineyard as to have in it a 1000 vines, worth a silverling (shekel, about fifty cents; a large price) each, there shall be only briers (Song of Songs 8:11). Vineyards are estimated by the number of the vines, and the goodness of the kind of vine. Judea admits of a high state of cultivation, and requires it, in order to be productive; its present barrenness is due to neglect.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 7:17-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 7:23

Of silver — Each of the thousand vineyards might have been sold or let for a thousand shekels, which was the yearly rent of some excellent vineyards.
