Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 59:14

_ _ Justice and righteousness are put away from our legal courts.

_ _ in the street — in the forum, the place of judicature, usually at the gate of the city (Zechariah 8:16).

_ _ cannot enter — is shut out from the forum, or courts of justice.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 59:9-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 59:14

Judgment — He speaks here of the sentences in courts of judicature. Truth — Truth is cast to the ground, and justice trampled under foot, even in publick. Equity — No such thing will be admitted in their courts.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 59:14

And (m) judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.

(m) There is neither justice nor uprightness among men.
