Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 8:17

_ _ I — Whatever the rest of the nation may do, I will look to Jehovah alone.

_ _ that hideth ... facethough He seems now to withdraw His countenance from Judah (the then representative of “the house of Jacob”). Let us wait and trust in, though we cannot see, Him (Isaiah 50:10; Isaiah 54:8; Habakkuk 2:3; Luke 2:25, Luke 2:38).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 8:16-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 8:17

Yet — Yet, notwithstanding this dreadful prophecy concerning the rejection of Israel. Wait — I will cast my care upon him, and expect the accomplishment of his promise, in sending the Messiah, and in conferring upon me and all believing Israelites all his mercies and blessings. Hideth — That now withdraws his favour and blessings, from the people of Israel.
