Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 47:10

_ _ wickedness — as in Isaiah 13:11, the cruelty with which Babylon treated its subject states.

_ _ None seeth me — (Psalms 10:11; Psalms 94:7). “There is none to exact punishment from me.” Sinners are not safe, though seeming secret.

_ _ Thy wisdom — astrological and political (Isaiah 19:11, etc., as to Egypt).

_ _ perverted — turns thee aside from the right and safe path.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 47:7-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 47:10

Trusted — Confidently expecting to preserve thyself by these and other wicked arts. None seeth — My counsels are so deeply laid. Perverted — Hath misled thee into the way of perdition. None seeth — Which is repeated, to denote their intolerable self — confidence.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(k) You thought that your own wisdom and policy would have saved you.
