Isaiah 1:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Ye rulers of Sodom "Ye princes of Sodom" - The incidental mention of Sodom and Gomorrah in the preceding verse suggested to the prophet this spirited address to the rulers and inhabitants of Jerusalem, under the character of princes of Sodom and people of Gomorrah. Two examples of a sort of elegant turn of the like kind may be observed in St. Paul's Epistle to the Romans, Romans 15:4, Romans 15:5, Romans 15:12, Romans 15:13. See Locke on the place; and see Isaiah 1:29, Isaiah 1:30, of this chapter, which gives another example of the same.
And - like unto Gomorrah. - The ו vau is added by thirty-one of Kennicott's MSS., twenty-nine of De Rossi's and one, very ancient, of my own. See note on Isaiah 1:6 (note).

Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city--which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt--where also their Lord was crucified.
The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.
Consult God's instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.
Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem.
For these are rebellious people, deceitful children, children unwilling to listen to the LORD's instruction.
For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us.
