    King James Bible - Isaiah 58:3

    Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.

    World English Bible

    'Why have we fasted,' [say they], 'and you don't see? [why] have we afflicted our soul, and you take no knowledge?' "Behold, in the
    day of your fast you find pleasure, and exact all your labors.

    Douay-Rheims - Isaiah 58:3

    Why have we fasted, and thou hast not regarded: have we humbled our souls, and thou hast not taken notice? Behold in the
    day of your fast your own will is found, and you exact of all your debtors.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 58:3

    ¶ ¿Por qu, dicen , ayunamos, y no hiciste caso? ¿Humillamos nuestras almas, y no lo supiste? He aquí que en el día de vuestro ayuno hallis lo que queris; y todos demandis vuestras haciendas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 58:3

    Verse 3. Have we
    adopted our soul "Have we afflicted our souls"] Twenty-seven MSS. (six ancient) of Dr. Kennicott's, thirty-six of De Rossi's, and two of my own, and the old edition of 1488 have the noun in the plural number, wnypn naphsheynu, our souls; and so the Septuagint, Chaldee, and Vulgate. This reading is undoubtedly genuine.

    In the day of your fast ye find pleasure] Fast days are generally called holidays, and holidays are days of idleness and pleasure. In numberless cases the fast is turned into a feast.

    And exact all your labours.] Some disregard the most sacred fast, and will oblige their servant to work all day long; others use fast days for the purpose of settling their accounts, posting up their books, and drawing out their bills to be ready to collect their debts. These are sneaking hypocrites; the others are daringly irreligious.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    Hypocrisy reproved. (Is. 58:1,2) A counterfeit and a true fast, with promises to real godliness, and, (Is. 58:3-12) to the keeping the sabbath. (Is. 58:13,14)

    Is. 58:1,2 The Holy Spirit had hypocrites of every age in view Self-love and timid Christians may say, Spare thyself; dislike to the cross and other motives will say, "Spare the rich and powerful;" but God says, "Spare not:" and we must obey God, not men. We all nee earnestly to pray for God's assistance in examining ourselves. Men ma go far toward heaven, yet come short; and they may go to hell with good reputation.

    Is. 58:3-12 A fast is a day to afflict the soul; if it does not expres true sorrow for sin, and does not promote the putting away of sin, it is not a fast. These professors had shown sorrow on stated of occasioned fasts. But they indulged pride, covetousness, and malignan passions. To be liberal and merciful is more acceptable to God tha mere fasting, which, without them, is vain and hypocritical. Many wh seem humble in God's house, are hard at home, and harass their families. But no man's faith justifies, which does not work by love Yet persons, families, neighbourhoods, churches, or nations, sho repentance and sorrow for sin, by keeping a fast sincerely, and, from right motives, repenting, and doing good works. The heavy yoke of sin and oppression must be removed. As sin and sorrow dry the bones an weaken the strongest human constitution; so the duties of kindness an charity strengthen and refresh both body and mind. Those who do justl and love mercy, shall have the comfort, even in this world. Good work will bring the blessing of God, provided they are done from love to God and man, and wrought in the soul by the Holy Spirit.

    Is. 58:13,14 The sabbath is a sign between God and his professin people; his appointing it is a sign of his favour to them; and their observing it is a sign of their obedience to him. We must turn from travelling on that day; from doing our pleasure on that holy day without the control and restraint of conscience; or from indulging in the pleasures of sense. On sabbath days we must not follow ou callings, or our pleasures. In all we say and do, we must put difference between this day and other days. Even in Old Testament time the sabbath was called the Lord's day, and is fitly called so still and for a further reason, it is the Lord Christ's day, Rev. 1:10. If we thus remember the sabbath day to keep it holy, we shall have the comfort and profit of it, and have reason to say, It is good to dra near to God __________________________________________________________________
