Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 61:6

_ _ But ye — as contrasted with the “strangers.” Ye shall have no need to attend to your flocks and lands: strangers will do that for you; your exclusive business will be the service of Jehovah as His “priests” (Exodus 19:6, which remains yet to be realized; compare as to the spiritual Israel, Isaiah 66:21; 1 Peter 2:5, 1 Peter 2:9; Revelation 1:6; Revelation 5:10).

_ _ Ministers — (Ezekiel 44:11).

_ _ eat ... riches of ... Gentiles — (Isaiah 60:5-11).

_ _ in their glory ... boast yourselves — rather, “in their splendor ye shall be substituted in their stead”; ye shall substitute yourselves [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 61:4-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 61:6

The priests — The whole body of them shall now be as near to God as the priests were formerly, and shall be a royal priesthood. This is most certainly true of all the faithful under the gospel.
