Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 55:11

_ _ (Matthew 24:35). Rain may to us seem lost when it falls on a desert, but it fulfils some purpose of God. So the gospel word falling on the hard heart; it sometimes works a change at last; and even if so, it leaves men without excuse. The full accomplishment of this verse, and Isaiah 55:12, Isaiah 55:13, is, however, to be at the Jews’ final restoration and conversion of the world (Isaiah 11:9-12; Isaiah 60:1-5, Isaiah 60:21).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 55:6-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 55:11

My word — My promises, concerning the pardon of the greatest sinners. Void — Without success.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 55:11

So shall my (m) word be that proceedeth from my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] for which I sent it.

(m) If these small things have their effect, as daily experience shows much more will my promise which I have made and confirmed, bring to pass the things which I have spoken for your deliverance.
