Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 32:7

_ _ churl — “the fraudulent”; this verse refers to the last clause of Isaiah 32:5; as Isaiah 32:6 referred to its first clause.

_ _ speaketh right — pleadeth a just cause (Isaiah 29:21); spiritually, “the poor man’s cause” is the divine doctrine, his rule of faith and practice.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 32:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 32:7

Lying words — With false and unrighteous decrees. Even — When their cause is just and good.
