(17) Every tongue that shall rise . . .--The thought implied is that war comes as the punishment of guilt, and that it is preceded by the "cry" of accusation. Many such cries had risen up against the old Jerusalem (Isaiah 5:7). There should be none such heard against the new.

This is the heritage.--The solemn asseveration indicates the close of a distinct section.

Verse 17. - No weapon... every tongue. Whether weapons are used against Israel, or whether she is attacked, as in Sennacherib's time, by "the tongue that speaketh proud things" (Isaiah 36:4-20; Isaiah 37:10-13), the result will he the same. She will triumph over her enemies, and condemn them or put them to shame. Her security is her righteousness, which she derives from Jehovah (comp. Isaiah 45:24, 25).
