Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 28:5-13.


Isaiah 28:12

_ _ Rather, “He (Jehovah) who hath said to them.”

_ _ this ... the rest — Reference may be primarily to “rest” from national warlike preparations, the Jews being at the time “weary” through various preceding calamities, as the Syro-Israelite invasion (Isaiah 7:8; compare Isaiah 30:15; Isaiah 22:8; Isaiah 39:2; Isaiah 36:1; 2 Kings 18:8). But spiritually, the “rest” meant is that to be found in obeying those very “precepts” of God (Isaiah 28:10) which they jeered at (compare Jeremiah 6:16; Matthew 11:29).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 28:9-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
