New International Version
Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.
King James Bible
Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
Darby Bible Translation
Say ye of the righteous that it shall be well [with him], for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
World English Bible
Tell the righteous "Good!" For they shall eat the fruit of their deeds.
Young's Literal Translation
Say ye to the righteous, that it is good, Because the fruit of their doings they eat.
Isaiah 3:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Say ye to the righteous - לצדיק letsaddik, the ל lamed is added here by one MS. and the Chaldee. The righteous is the person,
1. Who fears God.
2. Departs from evil.
3. Walks according to the testimony of God.
4. And expects and prepares for a glorious immortality.
"Pronounce ye." - The reading of this verse is very dubious. The Septuagint for אמרו imru read נאסר neasor, or both, אמרו נאסר imru neasor, and כי לא טוב לנו ki lo tob lanu. Δησωμεν τον δικαιον, ὁτι δυσχρηστος ἡμιν εστι. Perhaps, for אמרו imru, the true reading may be אשרו ashsheru, "bless you;" or אמרו אשרי imru ashrey, "say ye, blessed is." The Vulgate and an ancient MS. read in the singular number, יאכל yochel, comedat, "he shall eat."
"It shall be well with him:" - כי טוב ki tob, "that good." Say nothing to such but good. He is a good man, he does nothing but good, and has a good God to deal with, from whom he expects nothing but goodness. It shall be well with such in all circumstances of life.
1. In prosperity.
2. In adversity.
3. In sickness.
4. In health.
5. In death.
6. In judgment. And,
7. Through eternity

What had they gained by their departure from God?--bondage. What had they won in exchange for their freedom?-- only the hard service of Babylon. As Deuteronomy puts it: …

Far be it from you to do such a thing--to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?"
So God was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous.
Do not eat it, so that it may go well with you and your children after you, because you will be doing what is right in the eyes of the LORD.
