Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 29:14

_ _ (Habakkuk 1:5; Acts 13:41). The “marvelous work” is one of unparalleled vengeance on the hypocrites: compare “strange work,” Isaiah 28:21. The judgment, too, will visit the wise in that respect in which they most pride themselves; their wisdom shall be hid, that is, shall no longer appear, so as to help the nation in its distress (compare 1 Corinthians 1:19).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 29:9-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 29:14

Hid — Shall disappear and vanish.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 29:14

Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, [even] an wonderful work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise [men] shall (m) perish, and the understanding of their prudent [men] shall be hid.

(m) Meaning, where God is not worshipped according to his word, both magistrates and ministers are fools and without understanding.
