Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 40:31

_ _ mount up — (2 Samuel 1:23). Rather, “They shall put forth fresh feathers as eagles” are said to renovate themselves; the parallel clause, “renew their strength,” confirms this. The eagle was thought to molt and renew his feathers, and with them his strength, in old age (so the Septuagint, Vulgate, Psalms 103:5). However, English Version is favored by the descending climax, mount up — run — walk; in every attitude the praying, waiting child of God is “strong in the Lord” (Psalms 84:7; Micah 4:5; Hebrews 12:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 40:27-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 40:31

Wait — That rely upon him. Renew — Shall grow stronger and stronger.

The eagle. The bird that flies the highest, yet hardly flaps it's wings. It uses (as known in the paragliding world) thermals... Unseen rising air to reach those high places.
