Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 57:14

_ _ shall say — The nominative is, “He that trusteth in Me” (Isaiah 57:13). The believing remnant shall have every obstacle to their return cleared out of the way, at the coming restoration of Israel, the antitype to the return from Babylon (Isaiah 35:8; Isaiah 40:3, Isaiah 40:4; Isaiah 62:10, Isaiah 62:11).

_ _ Cast ... up — a high road before the returning Jews.

_ _ stumbling-block — Jesus had been so to the Jews, but will not be so then any longer (1 Corinthians 1:23); their prejudices shall then be taken out of the way.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 57:13-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And he — God will raise up a man who shall say with authority and efficacy. Cast up — Make causeways, where it is needful, for their safe and easy passage, and remove all things which may hinder them in their return.
