Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 59:6

_ _ not ... garments — like the “fig leaves” wherewith Adam and Eve vainly tried to cover their shame, as contrasted with “the coats of skins” which the Lord God made to clothe them with (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 13:14; Galatians 3:27; Philippians 3:9). The artificial self-deceiving sophisms of human philosophy (1 Timothy 6:5; 2 Timothy 2:16, 2 Timothy 2:23).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 59:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 59:6

Webs — Their contrivances shall not be able to cover or defend them.
