Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 65:7

_ _ Their sin had been accumulating from age to age until God at last repaid it in full.

_ _ mountains — (Isaiah 57:7; Ezekiel 18:6; Ezekiel 20:27, Ezekiel 20:28; Hosea 4:13).

_ _ their — “Your” had preceded. From speaking to, He speaks of them; this implies growing alienation from them and greater distance.

_ _ work — the full recompense of their work (so Isaiah 49:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 65:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 65:7

Together — Yea, and when I reckon with them, I will punish them, not only for their personal sins, but for the sins of their parents, which they have made their own, by imitation. Their former — I will not only punish the late sins that they have committed, but the former sins of this kind, which those that went before did commit, and they have continued in.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 65:7

Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers (l) together, saith the LORD, who have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.

(l) Will be both punished together: and this declares how the children are punished for their fathers faults, that is, when the same faults or like are found in them.
