_ _ spread out ... hands — inviting them earnestly (Proverbs 1:24).

_ _ all ... day — continually, late and early (Jeremiah 7:13).

_ _ rebellious people — Israel, whose rebellion was the occasion of God’s turning to the Gentiles (Romans 11:11, Romans 11:12, Romans 11:15).

_ _ way ... not good — that is, the very reverse of good, very bad (Ezekiel 36:31).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 65:2

I have spread — Applied to the Jews, Romans 10:21. I have stretched out my hands, I have used all means to reduce them, I have stretched out the hands of a passionate orator to persuade them, of a liberal benefactor to load them with my benefits; this I have done continually in the whole course of my providence with them.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 65:2

I have (b) spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people, which walketh in a way [that is] not good, after their own (c) thoughts;

(b) He shows the reason for the rejection of the Jews, because they would not obey him or any admonition of his prophets, by whom he called them continually and stretch out his hand to draw them.

(c) He shows that to delight in our own fantasies is the declining from God and the beginning of all superstitions and idolatry.
