Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 66:18

_ _ know — not in the Hebrew. Rather, understand the words by aposiopesis; it is usual in threats to leave the persons threatened to supply the hiatus from their own fears, owing to conscious guilt: “For I ... their works and thoughts,” etc.; namely, will punish [Maurer].

_ _ it shall come — the time is come that I will, etc. [Maurer].

_ _ gather ... nations — against Jerusalem, where the ungodly Jews shall perish; and then the Lord at last shall fight for Jerusalem against those nations: and the survivors (Isaiah 66:19) shall “see God’s glory” (Zechariah 12:8, Zechariah 12:9; Zechariah 14:1-3, Zechariah 14:9).

_ _ tongues — which have been many owing to sin, being confounded at Babel, but which shall again be one in Christ (Daniel 7:14; Zephaniah 3:9; Revelation 7:9, Revelation 7:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 66:15-24.

Come — It shall come to pass that I will cast them off, and then l will gather all nations, &c. My glory — My oracles, my ordinances, which hitherto have been locked up in the church of the Jews, and been their glory, shall be published to the Gentiles.
