Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 33:6

_ _ wisdom — sacred; that is, piety.

_ _ thy — Hezekiah’s; or rather, “Judea’s.” “His” refers to the same; such changes from the pronoun possessive of the second person to that of the third are common in Hebrew poetry.

_ _ treasure — Not so much material wealth as piety shall constitute the riches of the nation (Proverbs 10:22; Proverbs 15:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 33:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 33:6

Thy times — He turns his speech to Hezekiah. Thy throne shall be established upon the sure foundations of wisdom and justice. And strength — Thy strong salvation. The fear — Thy chief treasure is in promoting the fear and worship of God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 33:6
