Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 65:5

_ _ (Matthew 9:11; Luke 5:30; Luke 18:11; Jude 1:19). Applicable to the hypocritical self-justifiers of our Lord’s time.

_ _ smoke — alluding to the smoke of their self-righteous sacrifices; the fire of God’s wrath was kindled at the sight, and exhibited itself in the smoke that breathed forth from His nostrils; in Hebrew the nose is the seat of anger; and the nostrils distended in wrath, as it were, breathe forth smoke [Rosenmuller] (Psalms 18:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 65:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 65:5

Holier — Thus they esteemed themselves holier than others, though all their holiness lay in rituals, and those too, such as God never commanded. Of these God saith, These are a smoak in my nostrils, a fire that burneth all the day; that is, a continual provocation to me: as smoak is an offence to our noses.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 65:5

Which say, (h) Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These [are] a smoke in my nose, a fire that (i) burneth all the day.

(h) He shows that hypocrisy is always joined with pride and contempt of others.

(i) Their punishment will never have an end.
