Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 33:2

_ _ us; we ... their ... our — He speaks interceding for His people, separating himself in thought for a moment from them, and immediately returns to his natural identification with them in the word “our.”

_ _ every morning — each day as it dawns, especially during our danger, as the parallel “time of trouble” shows.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 33:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 33:2

O Lord — The prophet contemplating the judgment which was now coming upon God's people, directs his prayer to God for them. Their arm — Our arm or strength. The change of persons is frequent in prophetical writings. Every morning — When we offer the morning sacrifice, and call upon thee: which yet is not meant exclusively, as if he did not desire God's help at other times; but comprehensively, the morning being put for the whole day. The sense is, help us speedily and continually.
