Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 26:19

_ _ In antithesis to Isaiah 26:14, “They (Israel’s foes) shall not live”; “Thy (Jehovah’s) dead men (the Jews) shall live,” that is, primarily, be restored, spiritually (Isaiah 54:1-3), civilly and nationally (Isaiah 26:15); whereas Thy foes shall not; ultimately, and in the fullest scope of the prophecy, restored to life literally (Ezekiel 37:1-14; Daniel 12:2).

_ _ together with my dead body — rather, “my dead body,” or “bodies” (the Jewish nation personified, which had been spiritually and civilly dead; or the nation, as a parent, speaking of the bodies of her children individually, see on Isaiah 26:9, “I,” “My”): Jehovah’s “dead” and “my dead” are one and the same [Horsley]. However, as Jesus is the antitype to Israel (Matthew 2:15), English Version gives a true sense, and one ultimately contemplated in the prophecy: Christ’s dead body being raised again is the source of Jehovah’s people (all, and especially believers, the spiritual Israelites) also being raised (1 Corinthians 15:20-22).

_ _ Awake — (Ephesians 5:14), spiritually.

_ _ in dust — prostate and dead, spiritually and nationally; also literally (Isaiah 25:12; Isaiah 47:1).

_ _ dew — which falls copiously in the East and supplies somewhat the lack of rain (Hosea 14:5).

_ _ cast out ... dead — that is, shall bring them forth to life again.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 26:12-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 26:19

Thy — The prophet here turns his speech to God's people, and gives them a cordial in their distress. Thy dead men are not like those, Isaiah 26:14, for they shall not live; but thine shall live. You shall be delivered from all your fears and dangers. My dead body — As I myself, who am one of these dead men, shall live again; you shall be delivered together with me. Awake — Out of your sleep, even the sleep of death, you that are dead and buried in the dust. Thy dew — The favour and blessing of God upon thee. The dew — Which makes them grow and flourish.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 26:19

(t) Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy (u) dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

(t) He comforts the faithful in their afflictions, showing them that even in death they will have life and that they would certainly rise to glory, the contrary would come to the wicked, as in (Isaiah 26:14).

(u) As herbs dead in winter flourish again by the rain in the springtime, so they who lie in the dust will rise up to joy, when they feel the dew of God's grace.
