Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 30:26

_ _ Image from the heavenly bodies to express the increase of spiritual light and felicity. “Sevenfold” implies the perfection of that felicity, seven being the sacred number. It shall also be literally fulfilled hereafter in the heavenly city (Isaiah 60:19, Isaiah 60:20; Revelation 21:23, Revelation 21:24; Revelation 22:5).

_ _ breach — the wound, or calamity, sent by God on account of their sins (Isaiah 1:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 30:18-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 30:26

Sevenfold — As if the light of seven days were combined together in one. Healeth — When God shall effectually cure the wounds of his people, making Israel and Judah to be one, and making Jew and Gentile to be one fold under one shepherd.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 30:26

Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the (y) sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

(y) When the Church is restored, the glory of it will pass seven times the brightness of the sun: for by the sun and moon which are two excellent creations, he shows what will be the glory of the children of God in the kingdom of Christ.

User-Posted Comments on Isaiah 30:26


this is a specific date being talked about. At the time of the winter solstice the sun will stay above the horizon for seven full days at the south pole up to dec 25. (and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold)...if you stand at the north pole on dec 25 and look into the daytime sky you will see the moon which has replaced the sun (moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun). God loves a good riddle and without modern scientific knowledge this one has been unsolved for centuries.
