Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 61:8

_ _ judgment — justice, which requires that I should restore My people, and give them double in compensation for their sufferings.

_ _ robbery for burnt offering — rather, from a different Hebrew root, the spoil of iniquity [Horsley]. So in Job 5:6. Hating, as I do, the rapine, combined with iniquity, perpetrated on My people by their enemies, I will vindicate Israel.

_ _ direct ... work in truth — rather, “I will give them the reward of their work” (compare Isaiah 40:10, Margin; Isaiah 49:4, Margin; Isaiah 62:11, Margin) in faithfulness.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 61:4-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 61:8

Love judgment — I will do them right, for I love justice in myself, and in them that practise it. Robbery — All things gotten by injustice, though it be for sacrifice. Direct — I will lead them so, that they shall do all things in sincerity. Everlasting covenant — Though you have broken covenant with me, yet I will renew my ancient covenant made with your fathers, confirmed with the blood of Christ, and it shall be everlasting, never to be abrogated.
