Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 28:5-13.

Isaiah 28:11

_ _ For — rather, “Truly.” This is Isaiah’s reply to the scoffers: Your drunken questions shall be answered by the severe lessons from God conveyed through the Assyrians and Babylonians; the dialect of these, though Semitic, like the Hebrew, was so far different as to sound to the Jews like the speech of stammerers (compare Isaiah 33:19; Isaiah 36:11). To them who will not understand God will speak still more unintelligibly.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 28:9-13.
