Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 26:10

_ _ uprightness — rather, as in Isaiah 26:7, “prosperity,” answering to “favor” in the parallelism, and in antithesis to “judgments in the earth” (Isaiah 26:9); where prosperity attends the wicked as well as the just, “he will not learn righteousness,” therefore judgments must be sent that he may “learn” it [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 26:5-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 26:10

Will not learn — This is the carriage of thy people; but the course of wicked men is directly contrary in all conditions: for if thou dost spare them, they will not accept of that gracious invitation to repentance. In the land — Even in God's church, and among his people, where righteousness is taught and practised. Will not behold — Tho' God gives such plain discoveries of his majesty and glory, not only in his word, but also in works, and especially in this glorious work of his patience and mercy to wicked men, yet they will not acknowledge it.
