Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 44:1-5.


Isaiah 44:2

_ _ (Isaiah 43:1, Isaiah 43:7).

_ _ formed ... from ... womb — (So Isaiah 44:24; Isaiah 49:1, Isaiah 49:5). The sense is similar to that in Isaiah 1:2, “I have nourished and brought up children.”

_ _ Jesurun — A diminutive term of endearment applied to Israel. The full title of affection was Israelun; contracted it became Jeshurun, with an allusion to the Hebrew root, jashar, “upright,” “perfect” (see on Isaiah 42:19, note on “He that is perfect”) [Gesenius], (Deuteronomy 32:15).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 44:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 44:2

Formed thee — From the time that I first took thee to be my people, I have been forming and fashioning thee. Jesurun — Another name of Jacob or Israel, given to him, Deuteronomy 32:15.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 44:2

Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed (a) thee from the womb, [who] will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, (b) whom I have chosen.

(a) He treated and chose you from the beginning of his own mercy, and before you could merit anything.

(b) Whom God accepts as righteous: or who had opportunity to it because of the law, and your holy calling.
