Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 54:15

_ _ gather together, etc. — that is, If it should happen that enemies “gather together” against thee (Psalms 2:2), they will not have been sent by Me (compare Hosea 8:4) as instruments of My wrath (nay, it will be with My disapproval); for “whosoever shall gather together,” etc. (Psalms 59:3).

_ _ fall for thy sake — rather, “shall come over to thy side” [Lowth]. Literally, “fall to thee” (Jeremiah 21:9; Jeremiah 39:9). To be fully fulfilled to Jerusalem hereafter (Zechariah 14:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 54:11-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Behold — It is true some will combine and make an attempt against thee. But — Without any such commission from me, as Sennacherib and Nebuchadnezzar had.
