Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 44:22

_ _ blotted out — the debt of thy sin from the account-book in which it was entered (Exodus 32:32, Exodus 32:33; Revelation 20:12).

_ _ as a thick cloud — scattered away by the wind (Psalms 103:12).

_ _ as a cloud — a descending gradation. Not only the “thick cloud” of the heavier “transgressions,” but the “cloud” (“vapor” [Lowth], not so dense, but covering the sky as a mist) of the countless “sins.” These latter, though not thought much of by man, need, as much as the former, to be cleared away by the Sun of righteousness; else they will be a mist separating us from heaven (Psalms 19:12, Psalms 19:13; 1 John 1:7-9).

_ _ return ... for — The antecedent redemption is the ground of, and motive to, repentance. We do not repent in order that He may redeem us, but because He hath redeemed us (Zechariah 12:10; Luke 24:47; Acts 3:18, Acts 3:19). He who believes in his being forgiven cannot but love (Luke 7:43, Luke 7:47).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 44:22

As a cloud — So that there is no remnant of it left.
