Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 29:12

_ _ The unlearned succeed no better than the learned, not from want of human learning, as they fancy, but from not having the teaching of God (Isaiah 54:13; Jeremiah 31:34; John 6:45; 1 Corinthians 2:7-10; 1 John 2:20).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 29:9-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 29:12

Of all — Of all, your prophets. As a book — In which no man can read, while it is sealed up, as books then sometimes were, being made in the form of rolls. Delivered — Unsealed and opened.
