Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 11:5

_ _ righteousness ... girdle — (Revelation 1:13; Revelation 19:11). The antitypical High Priest (Exodus 28:4). The girdle secures firmly the rest of the garments (1 Peter 1:13). So “truth” gives firm consistency to the whole character (Ephesians 5:14). In Isaiah 59:17, “righteousness” is His breastplate.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 11:1-9.
