Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 26:7

_ _ uprightness — rather, “is direct,” that is, is directed by God to a prosperous issue, however many be their afflictions in the meantime (as in the case of the Jewish exiles); the context requires this sense (Psalms 34:19; Proverbs 3:6; Proverbs 11:5), [Maurer]: thus “way” means God’s dealings with the righteous (Psalms 37:23).

_ _ most upright — (Deuteronomy 32:4).

_ _ dost weigh — (1 Samuel 2:3; Proverbs 5:21). Rather, “thou dost make plain and level” [Maurer], removing all obstacles (Isaiah 40:3, Isaiah 40:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 26:5-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 26:7

Thou — O God, who art upright in all thy ways, and therefore a lover of uprightness, and of all upright men, dost weigh (examine) the path of the just, the course of his actions, and, which is implied, dost approve of them, and therefore direct them to an happy issue.
