Isaiah 2:21 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
To go - That is, that he may go.
Clefts of the rocks - see the note at Isaiah 2:19.

They denote the severity of God's justice, and the image is a faint representation of the consternation of people when Christ shall come to judge the earth; Revelation 6:15-17.

This Question I Should Briefly Solve, if I Should Say...
Who shakes the earth out of its place, And its pillars tremble;
Enter the rock and hide in the dust From the terror of the LORD and from the splendor of His majesty.
Men will go into caves of the rocks And into holes of the ground Before the terror of the LORD And the splendor of His majesty, When He arises to make the earth tremble.
Then it will be that he who flees the report of disaster will fall into the pit, And he who climbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare; For the windows above are opened, and the foundations of the earth shake.
"Now I will arise," says the LORD, "Now I will be exalted, now I will be lifted up.
"Behold, I am going to send for many fishermen," declares the LORD, "and they will fish for them; and afterwards I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain and every hill and from the clefts of the rocks.
