Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 57:2

_ _ Or, “he entereth into peace”; in contrast to the persecutions which he suffered in this world (Job 3:13, Job 3:17). The Margin not so well translates, “he shall go in peace” (Psalms 37:37; Luke 2:29).

_ _ rest — the calm rest of their bodies in their graves (called “beds,” 2 Chronicles 16:14; compare Isaiah 14:18; because they “sleep” in them, with the certainty of awakening at the resurrection, 1 Thessalonians 4:14) is the emblem of the eternal “rest” (Hebrews 4:9; Revelation 14:13).

_ _ each one walking in ... uprightness — This clause defines the character of those who at death “rest in their beds,” namely, all who walk uprightly.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 57:1-2.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 57:2

He — This just and merciful man shall enter into a state of rest, where he shall be out of the reach of the approaching miseries. They — just men. Here is a sudden change of the number, which is very frequent in the prophets. Beds — In their graves, which are not unfitly called their beds, as their death is commonly called sleep in scripture.
