Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 35:8

_ _ highway — such a causeway (raised way, from a Hebrew root, “to cast up”) as was used for the march of armies; valleys being filled up, hills and other obstructions removed (Isaiah 62:10; compare Isaiah 40:3, Isaiah 40:4).

_ _ way of holiness — Hebraism for “the holy way.” Horsley translates, “the way of the Holy One;” but the words that follow, and Isaiah 35:10, show it is the way leading the redeemed back to Jerusalem, both the literal and the heavenly (Isaiah 52:1; Joel 3:17; Revelation 21:27); still Christ at His coming again shall be the Leader on the way, for which reason it is called, “The way of the Lord” (Isaiah 40:3; Malachi 3:1).

_ _ it shall be for those: the wayfaring men — rather, “He (the Holy One) shall be with them, walking in the way” [Horsley].

_ _ though fools — rather, “And (even) fools,” that is, the simple shall not go astray, namely, because “He shall be with them” (Matthew 11:25; 1 Corinthians 1:26-28).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 35:5-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 35:8

A way — The high — way and the way are not to be taken for two different ways, but for one and the same way, even a causey, which is raised ground, and a way. Holiness — The people (walking in it) shall be all righteous. For those — But this way shall be appropriated to those persons above — mentioned; the weak, and blind, and lame, whom God will lead and save. Though fools — The way shall be so plain and strait, that even the most foolish travellers cannot easily mistake it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(h) It will be for the saints of God and not for the wicked.

(i) God will lead and guide them, alluding to the bringing forth of Egypt.
