Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 57:6

_ _ The smooth stones, shaped as idols, are the gods chosen by thee as thy portion (Psalms 16:5).

_ _ meat offering — not a bloody sacrifice, but one of meal and flour mingled with oil. “Meat” in Old English meant food, not flesh, as it means now (Leviticus 14:10).

_ _ Should I receive comfort — rather, “Shall I bear these things with patience?” [Horsley].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 57:3-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 57:6

Portion — Thou hast chosen for thy portion those idols, which were worshipped by the sides of brooks or rivers where such smooth stones commonly lie. They — Thou hast forsaken me and chosen idols. Offered — For the devil is God's ape, and idolaters used the same rites and offerings in the worship of idols which God had prescribed in his own. Comfort — Should I be pleased with such a people and such actions?
