Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 9:5

_ _ every battle, etc. — rather, “every greave of (the warrior who is) armed with greaves in the din of battle, and the martial garment (or cloak, called by the Latins sagum) rolled in blood, shall be for burning, (and) fuel for fire” [Maurer]. All warlike accoutrements shall be destroyed, as no longer required in the new era of peace (Isaiah 2:4; Isaiah 11:6, Isaiah 11:7; Psalms 46:9; Ezekiel 39:9; Micah 5:5, Micah 5:10; Zechariah 9:9, Zechariah 9:10). Compare Malachi 4:1, as to the previous burning up of the wicked.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 9:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 9:5

Noise — With the triumphant exclamations of the conqueror, and the bitter lamentations of the conquered, and the different cries of the same persons, sometimes conquering, and sometimes conquered. Blood — With great difficulty and slaughter. But — But this victory which God's people shall have over all their enemies, shall be more terrible to their adversaries, whom God will utterly consume, as it were by fire.
