Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 30:10

_ _ (Micah 2:6, Micah 2:11; Micah 3:5).

_ _ See not — as you now do, foretelling misfortune.

_ _ Prophesy not ... right things — Not that they avowedly requested this, but their conduct virtually expressed it. No man, professedly, wished to be deceived; but many seek a kind of teaching which is deceit; and which, if they would examine, they might know to be such (1 Kings 22:13). The Jews desired success to be foretold as the issue of their league with Egypt, though ill had been announced by God’s prophet as the result; this constituted the “deceits.”
