Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 1:26

_ _ As the degeneracy had shown itself most in the magistrates (Isaiah 1:17-23), so, at the “restoration,” these shall be such as the theocracy “at the first” had contemplated, namely, after the Babylonish restoration in part and typically, but fully and antitypically under Messiah (Isaiah 32:1; Isaiah 52:8; Jeremiah 33:7; Matthew 19:28).

_ _ faithful — no longer “an harlot.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 1:21-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
