    Clarke's Commentary on Isaiah 32:17

    The work of righteousness - Righteousness works and produces peace.

    The effect of righteousness - עבדת abodath, the culture. Righteousness, cultivated by peace, produces tranquillity of mind and permanent security. Reader, hast thou the principle? If so, dost thou cultivate it? If thou dost, thou hast peace of conscience, joy in the Holy Ghost, and a sure and certain hope of everlasting life.

    Barnes' Notes on Isaiah 32:17

    And the work of righteousness - That which righteousness produces; or the effect of the prevalence of righteousness on the nation.

    Shall be peace - There shall be no internal agitation, and no conflicts with foreign nations.

    Quietness and assurance - This is a beautiful description of the happy effect of the prevalence of piety; and it is as true now as it was in the time of Isaiah. True religion would put an end to strifes and litigations; to riots and mobs; to oppressions and tumults; to alarms and robbery; to battle, and murder, and conflict.
