Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 38:9-20.


Isaiah 38:15-20

_ _ The second part of the song passes from prayer to thanksgiving at the prayer being heard.

_ _ What shall I say? — the language of one at a loss for words to express his sense of the unexpected deliverance.

_ _ both spoken ... and ... done it — (Numbers 23:19). Both promised and performed (1 Thessalonians 5:24; Hebrews 10:23).

_ _ himself — No one else could have done it (Psalms 98:1).

_ _ go softly ... in the bitterness — rather, “on account of the bitterness”; I will behave myself humbly in remembrance of my past sorrow and sickness from which I have been delivered by God’s mercy (see 1 Kings 21:27, 1 Kings 21:29). In Psalms 42:4, the same Hebrew verb expresses the slow and solemn gait of one going up to the house of God; it is found nowhere else, hence Rosenmuller explains it, “I will reverently attend the sacred festivals in the temple”; but this ellipsis would be harsh; rather metaphorically the word is transferred to a calm, solemn, and submissive walk of life.


Isaiah 38:19

_ _ living ... living — emphatic repetition, as in Isaiah 38:11, Isaiah 38:17; his heart is so full of the main object of his prayer that, for want of adequate words, he repeats the same word.

_ _ father to the children — one generation of the living to another. He probably, also, hints at his own desire to live until he should have a child, the successor to his throne, to whom he might make known and so perpetuate the memory of God’s truth.

_ _ truthfaithfulness to His promises; especially in Hezekiah’s case, His promise of hearing prayer.
