Definitions for Isaiah 29 :20

Iniquity - Sin; wickedness; evil.
Nought - Nothing.

Clarke's Commentary on Isaiah 29 :20

Barnes's Commentary on Isaiah 29 :20

For the terrible one - The violent one (עריץ ‛ârı̂yts), the oppressor, who had exercised cruelty over them. This, I suppose, refers to the haughty among the Jews themselves; to those who held offices of power, and who abused them to oppress the poor and needy.

And the scorner - (see Isaiah 28:14, Isaiah 28:22).

Is consumed - Shall be entirely destroyed.

And all that watch for iniquity - That is, who anxiously seek for opportunities to commit iniquity.

Wesley's Commentary on Isaiah 29 :20

29:20 That watch - That early and diligently apply themselves to the practice of wickedness.
