Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 57:18

_ _ Rather, “I have seen his ways (in sin), yet will I heal him,” that is, restore Israel spiritually and temporally (Jeremiah 33:6; Jeremiah 3:22; Hosea 14:4, Hosea 14:5) [Horsley].

_ _ I will ... restore comforts unto him and to his mourners — However, the phrase, “his mourners,” favors English Version; “his ways” will thus be his ways of repentance; and God’s pardon on “seeing” them answers to the like promise (Isaiah 61:2, Isaiah 61:3; Jeremiah 31:18, Jeremiah 31:20).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 57:17-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 57:18

Mourners — To those who are humbled under God's hand, that mourn in Zion for their own and others sins.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 57:18

I have seen his ways, and will (u) heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts to him and to his mourners.

(u) Though they were obstinate, yet I did not withdraw my mercy from them.
