Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 58:11

_ _ satisfy ... in drought — (Isaiah 41:17, Isaiah 41:18). Literally, “drought,” that is, parched places [Maurer].

_ _ make fat — rather, “strengthen” [Noyes]. “Give thee the free use of thy bones” [Jerome], or, “of thy strength” [Horsley].

_ _ watered garden — an Oriental picture of happiness.

_ _ fail notHebrew, “deceive not”; as streams that disappoint the caravan which had expected to find water, as formerly, but find it dried up (Job 6:15-17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 58:8-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 58:11

Guide thee — Like a shepherd. And he adds continually to shew that his conduct and blessing shall not be momentary, or of a short continuance, but all along as it was to Israel in the wilderness. Satisfy — Thou shalt have plenty, when others are in scarcity. Make fat — This may be spoken in opposition to the sad effects of famine, whereby the flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen, and the bones that were not seen, stick out. A garden — If thou relieve the poor, thou shalt never be poor, but as a well — watered garden, always flourishing. Fail not — Heb. deceive not, a metaphor which farther notes also the continuance of this flourishing state, which will not be like a land — flood, or brooks, that will soon be dried up with drought. Thou shalt be fed with a spring of blessing, that will never fail.
