Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 27:8

_ _ In measure — not beyond measure; in moderation (Job 23:6; Psalms 6:1; Jeremiah 10:24; Jeremiah 30:11; Jeremiah 46:28).

_ _ when it shooteth — image from the vine; rather, passing from the image to the thing itself, “when sending her away (namely, Israel to exile; Isaiah 50:1, God only putting the adulteress away when He might justly have put her to death), Thou didst punish her” [Gesenius].

_ _ stayeth — rather, as Margin,when He removeth it by His rough wind in the day,” etc.

_ _ east wind — especially violent in the East (Job 27:21; Jeremiah 18:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 27:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 27:8

In measure — With moderation. When — When the vine shooteth forth its luxuriant branches, he cuts them off, but so as not to destroy the vine. Contend — God is said to contend with men, when he executes his judgments upon them, Amos 7:4. Stayeth — He mitigates the severity of the judgment. In the day — In the time when he sends forth his east — wind; which he mentions because that wind in those parts was most violent and most hurtful.
