Isaiah 28:11

Isaiah 28:11

For with stammering lips and another tongue will he
speak to this people.
] Or "hath spoken" F19; as parents and nurses, in a lisping manner, and in a language and tone different from what they use in common, speak unto their children, accommodating themselves according to their capacities and weakness; and so it is a continuation of the method to be used in instructing the Jews, as being like children: or else these words are to be considered as a reason why, since they refused instruction in this plain, easy, and gentle manner, by the ministry of the prophets of the Lord, he would speak to them in a more severe and in a rougher manner in his providences, and bring a people against them of a strange language they understood not, and so should not be able to treat and make peace with them, and who would carry them captive into a strange land; which was fulfilled by bringing the Chaldean army upon them, ( Jeremiah 5:15 ) see ( 1 Corinthians 14:21 ) and afterwards the Romans.
