Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 58:9

_ _ Then ... call ... answer — when sin is renounced (Isaiah 65:24). When the Lord’s call is not hearkened to, He will not hear our “call” (Psalms 66:18; Proverbs 1:24, Proverbs 1:28; Proverbs 15:29; Proverbs 28:9).

_ _ putting forth of ... finger — the finger of scorn pointed at simple-minded godly men. The middle finger was so used by the Romans.

_ _ speaking vanity — every injurious speech [Lowth].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 58:8-12.
