Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 7:13

_ _ Is it a small thing? — Is it not enough for you (Numbers 16:9)? The allusion to “David” is in order to contrast his trust in God with his degenerate descendant Ahaz’ distrust.

_ _ weary — try the patience of.

_ _ men — prophets. Isaiah as yet had given no outward proof that he was from God; but now God has offered a sign, which Ahaz publicly rejects. The sin is therefore now not merely against “men,” but openly against “God.” Isaiah’s manner therefore changes from mildness to bold reproof.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 7:10-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 7:13

David — He reproves them all, because they were the king's counsellors. Is it a small thing — Is it not wickedness enough. My God — To vex God's prophets and people, with your oppressions and horrid impieties. And by your ingratitude and unbelief, and disobedience of his commands.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 7:13

And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; [Is it] a small thing for you to weary (l) men, but will ye weary my God also?

(l) You think you have to do with men when you contemn God's messengers but it is God against whom you bend yourselves.
