Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 57:19

_ _ fruit of ... lips — that is, thanksgivings which flow from the lips. I make men to return thanks to Me (Hosea 14:2; Hebrews 13:15).

_ _ Peace, peace — “perfect peace” (see Isaiah 26:3, Margin; John 14:27). Primarily, the cessation of the troubles now afflicting the Jews, as formerly, under the Babylonian exile. More generally, the peace which the Gospel proclaims both to Israel “that is near,” and to the Gentiles who are “far off” (Acts 2:39; Ephesians 2:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 57:17-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 57:19

I create — I will by my almighty power produce. Peace — That peace which is not wrought by mens hands, but only by God's lips or word. The doubling of the word signifies the certainty and abundance this peace. Far off — To the Gentiles who are far from God, as well as to the Jews, who are called a people near unto God, Psalms 148:14.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(x) That is, I frame the speech and words of my messengers who will bring peace.

(y) As well to him that is in captivity as to him that remains at home.
