    Barnes' Notes on Isaiah 22:19

    And from thy state - From thy office; thy place of trust and responsibility.

    Shall he pull thee down - That is, "God" shall do it. The prophet here uses the third person instead of the first. Such a change of person is very common in the writings of the prophets (see Stuart's "Heb. Gram." 563-565, sixth Ed.)

    22:19 He - The Lord; such sudden changes of persons being very usual in these writings.
