    Barnes' Notes on Isaiah 29:14

    I will proceed to do - Hebrew, 'I will add to do;' that is, I will do it.

    For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish - I will bring calamity upon them which shall baffle all the skill and wisdom of their wise men.

    Shall be hid - That is, shall not appear; shall vanish. It shall not be sufficient to prevent the calamities that shall come upon the nation.

    Wesley's Notes on Isaiah 29:14

    29:14 Hid - Shall disappear and vanish.
