Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 38:3

_ _ He mentions his past religious consistency, not as a boast or a ground for justification; but according to the Old Testament dispensation, wherein temporal rewards (as long life, etc., Exodus 20:12) followed legal obedience, he makes his religious conduct a plea for asking the prolongation of his life.

_ _ walked — Life is a journey; the pious “walk with God” (Genesis 5:24; 1 Kings 9:4).

_ _ perfect — sincere; not absolutely perfect, but aiming towards it (Matthew 5:45); single-minded in walking as in the presence of God (Genesis 17:1). The letter of the Old Testament legal righteousness was, however, a standard very much below the spirit of the law as unfolded by Christ (Matthew 5:20-48; 2 Corinthians 3:6, 2 Corinthians 3:14, 2 Corinthians 3:17).

_ _ wept sore — Josephus says, the reason why he wept so sorely was that being childless, he was leaving the kingdom without a successor. How often our wishes, when gratified, prove curses! Hezekiah lived to have a son; that son was the idolater Manasseh, the chief cause of God’s wrath against Judah, and of the overthrow of the kingdom (2 Kings 23:26, 2 Kings 23:27).
