Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 29:11

_ _ of all — rather, “the whole vision.” “Vision” is the same here as “revelation,” or “law”; in Isaiah 28:15, the same Hebrew word is translated, “covenant” [Maurer].

_ _ sealed — (Isaiah 8:16), God seals up the truth so that even the learned, because they lack believing docility, cannot discern it (Matthew 13:10-17; Matthew 11:25). Prophecy remained comparatively a sealed volume (Daniel 12:4, Daniel 12:9), until Jesus, who “alone is worthy,” “opened the seals” (Revelation 5:1-5, Revelation 5:9; Revelation 6:1).

And the vision of all is become to you as the words of a book that is sealed, which [men] deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I (i) cannot; for it [is] sealed:

(i) Meaning, that it is all alike, either to read, or not to read, unless God open the heart to understand.
