    Barnes' Notes on Isaiah 9:13

    For the people ... - This is a reason why his anger would not cease, and it is, at the same time, the suggestion of a new crime for which the divine judgment would rest upon them. It commences the second part of the oracle.

    Turneth not - It is implied here that it was the design of the chastisement to turn them to God. In this case, as in many others, such a design had not been accomplished.

    Unto him that smiteth them - To God, who had punished them.

    Neither do they seek - They do not seek his protection and favor; they do not worship and honor him.

    The Lord of hosts - Note, Isaiah 1:9.

    Wesley's Notes on Isaiah 9:13
