Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 11:6

_ _ wolf ... lamb — Each animal is coupled with that one which is its natural prey. A fit state of things under the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 65:25; Ezekiel 34:25; Hosea 2:18). These may be figures for men of corresponding animal-like characters (Ezekiel 22:27; Ezekiel 38:13; Jeremiah 5:6; Jeremiah 13:23; Matthew 7:15; Luke 10:3). Still a literal change in the relations of animals to man and each other, restoring the state in Eden, is a more likely interpretation. Compare Genesis 2:19, Genesis 2:20, with Psalms 8:6-8, which describes the restoration to man, in the person of “the Son of man,” of the lost dominion over the animal kingdom of which he had been designed to be the merciful vicegerent under God, for the good of his animal subjects (Romans 8:19-22).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 11:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 11:6

The wolf — The creatures shall be restored to that state of innocency in which they were before the fall of man. Men of fierce, and cruel dispositions, shall be so transformed by the grace of Christ, that they shall become gentle, and tractable. A child — They will submit their rebellious wills to the conduct of the meanest persons that speak to them in Christ's name.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 11:6

The (c) wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

(c) Men because of their wicked affections are named by the names of beasts, in which the same affections reign: but Christ by his Spirit will reform them, and work in them such mutual charity, that they will be like lambs, favouring and loving one another and cast off all their cruel affections, (Isaiah 65:25).
