Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 27:5

_ _ Or — Else; the only alternative, if Israel’s enemies wish to escape being “burnt together.”

_ _ strength — rather, “the refuge which I afford” [Maurer]. “Take hold,” refers to the horns of the altar which fugitives often laid hold of as an asylum (1 Kings 1:50; 1 Kings 2:28). Jesus is God’s “strength,” or “refuge” which sinners must repair to and take hold of, if they are to have “peace” with God (Isaiah 45:24; Romans 5:1; Ephesians 2:14; compare Job 22:21).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 27:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 27:5

Or — Or if at any time fury seem to be in me against my people. Let him — My people. Take hold — Which he may by humble prayer not only restrain from doing him hurt, but engage to do him good.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 27:5

Or let him (e) take hold of my strength, [that] he may make peace with me; [and] he shall make peace with me.

(e) He marvels that Israel will not come by gentleness, unless God make them to feel his rods, and so bring them to him.
