Bible Commentary for Isaiah 24:23

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 24:23


24:23 The sun - All earthly powers and glories shall be obscured with the far greater splendor of Christ, the king of kings, at whose feet even the kings of the earth shall fall down and worship. The Lord - The Messiah, who, tho' man, yet is also God, and the Lord of hosts. Shall reign - Shall come in the flesh, and set up his kingdom, first in Jerusalem, and afterward in all other nations. Before - Before his ministers, who are in some sort the courtiers of the King of Glory. But the ancients are here put for the whole church, in whose name and for whose service they act.

  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 24:23
    I think you're enquiring about Isaiah 24:23. If so, then this whole chapter deals with Gods' message to Judah through his servant Isaiah, about the future Great Tribulation to come upon Israel (& the whole world). You should read also chapters 25-27. Isaiah writes specifically to his people & how they will be affected. Jesus also spoke of this time (Mt 24) & particularly in reference to Isa 24:23, Jesus says in Mt 24:29,30, that "the sun & moon will be darkened & the stars fall & then shall He (the Son of Man) appear in the clouds in great power & glory". We understand that this time will be when Jesus, the King of kings will come from Heaven (where He is now at the Father's Right Hand), to reign on the Earth for a thousand years & sin & Satan will be bound. His children will reign with him for a thousand years in Jerusalem. When we consider all that lies ahead & especially the horrors for those who refuse Jesus, we can but rejoice in the gift of Salvation from God.
  • Charles walter doughty on Isaiah 24:23
    The word in the Hebrew is "old men" or elders, It is hard to believe that it is so ambiguously translated as to be "ancients". There is another Hebrew word for ancient, it is used of God and Jesus "ancient of days". The reign of Christ is accompanied by the agreement of the sun and moon who shine the more in recognition of this fact and will cease also in the same recognition. Evangelists ordain elders (Titus 1:5), and elders oversee the congregations in the Kingdom of Christ. It is a great loss that this passage has not been accurately translated.
