The Scofield Bible Commentary, by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, [1917], at

Isaiah Chapter 26

Isaiah 26:3

isa 26:3


(See Scofield) - (Psa 2:12).

Isaiah 26:19

isa 26:19

thy dead men

Eliminate the supplied words, men, and, together with. "Body" is in the plural, "bodies." (Isa 26:19-21) with chapter 27, constitute Jehovah's answer to the plaint of Israel, (Isa 26:11-18). Verse 19 (Isa 26:19) should read: "Thy dead shall live: my dead bodies shall rise" (that is, the dead bodies of Jehovah's people). The restoration and re-establishment of Israel as a nation is also spoken of as a resurrection (Eze 37:1-11) and many hold that no more than this is meant in (Isa 26:19). But since the first resurrection is unto participation in the kingdom (Rev 20:4-6) it seems the better view that both meanings are here.
