Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 26:11

_ _ lifted up — to punish the foes of God’s people. They who will not see shall be made to “see” to their cost (Isaiah 5:12).

_ _ their envy at the people — that is, “Thy people.” Lowth translates, “They shall see with confusion Thy zeal for Thy people.”

_ _ fire of ... enemies — that is, the fire to which Thine enemies are doomed (Isaiah 9:18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 26:5-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 26:11

Will not see — And they are guilty of the same obstinate blindness when thou dost smite and punish them, which is commonly signified by lifting up the hand. They shall see — They shall know that by sad experience, which they would not learn by easier ways. These — Such fire or wrath as thou usest to pour forth upon thine implacable enemies.
