Isaiah 40:23

That brings the princes to nothing; he makes the judges of the earth as nothing.
Read Chapter 40

Basil the Great

AD 379
“He that stretches out the heavens as a vaulted ceiling.” These same thoughts, let us also recommend to ourselves concerning the earth, not to be curious about what its substance is; or to wear ourselves out by reasoning, seeking its very foundation; or to search for some nature destitute of qualities, existing without quality of itself; but to realize well that all that is seen around it is related to the reason of its existence, forming an essential part of its substance. - "Homilies on the Hexameron 1.8"

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Searchers. Hebrew, "princes to nothing. "(Protestants) Philosophers know nothing independently of God, nor can they subsist without him. (Worthington)

John Chrysostom

AD 407
When he spoke of the heavens, Isaiah said, “It is he who set up the heaven as a vaulted chamber and stretched it out as a tent over the earth.” And he said of the earth, “It is he that comprehends the circle of the earth and made the earth as if it were nothing,” even though the earth is so great and vast.… Despite the fact that the earth is so great and so vast, God made it with such ease that the prophet could find no fitting example. So he said that God made the earth “as if it were nothing.” - "Against the Anomoeans, Homily 2.24–25"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
