Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 65:16

_ _ That he — rather, “he who,” etc.

_ _ blesseth, etc. — (Psalms 72:17; Jeremiah 4:2).

_ _ God of truth — very God, as opposed to false gods; Hebrew, Amen: the very name of Messiah (2 Corinthians 1:20; Revelation 3:14), faithful to His promises (John 1:17; John 6:32). Real, substantial, spiritual, eternal, as opposed to the shadowy types of the law.

_ _ sweareth, etc. — God alone shall be appealed to as God (Isaiah 19:18; Deuteronomy 6:13; Psalms 63:11).

_ _ troubles — that is, sins, provocations [Lowth]. Rather, calamities caused by your sins; so far from these visiting you again, the very remembrance of them is “hid from Mine eyes” by the magnitude of the blessings I will confer on you (Isaiah 65:17, etc.). [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 65:11-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 65:16

God of truth — Because they shall see what God promised is fulfilled. Are hid — That is, they are at an end.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 65:16

That he who blesseth himself in the (u) earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former (x) troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes.

(u) By blessing, and by swearing is meant the praising of God for his benefits, and the true worshipping of him, who will not be only in Judea, but through all the world.

(x) I will no longer permit my Church to be desolate as in times past.
