_ _ branch and rush — another image for the same thought (Isaiah 19:15). The branch is elevated on the top of the tree: the rush is coarse and low.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 9:8-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 9:14

Head — High and low. Branch — The goodly branches of tall trees, the mighty and noble. Rush — The bulrush, the weakest and meanest persons. One day — All together, one as well as another.
