    Clarke's Commentary on Isaiah 28:12

    This is the rest "This is the true rest" - The sense of this verse is: God had warned them by his prophets that their safety and security, their deliverance from their present calamities and from the apprehensions of still greater approaching, depended wholly on their trust in God, their faith and obedience; but they rejected this gracious warning with contempt and mockery.

    This is the rest - That is, this is the true way of happiness, to wit, by keeping the commands of God which had been so often repeated as to become to them objects of satiety and disgust.

    This is the refreshing - This is the way in which the mind may be comforted.

    28:12 This - This doctrine. The rest - The only way, in which you will find rest.
