Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 5:19

_ _ work — vengeance (Isaiah 5:12). Language of defiance to God. So Lamech’s boast of impunity (Genesis 4:23, Genesis 4:24; compare Jeremiah 17:15; 2 Peter 3:3, 2 Peter 3:4).

_ _ counsel — God’s threatened purpose to punish.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 5:18-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 5:19

Let him — God, in whose name thou and other prophets are always threatening us. This was the plain language of their actions; they lived as if they were of this opinion. The Holy One — They scornfully repeated the title usually given by the prophets to God.
