Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 41:14

_ _ worm — in a state of contempt and affliction, whom all loathe and tread on, the very expression which Messiah, on the cross, applies to Himself (Psalms 22:6), so completely are the Lord and His people identified and assimilated. God’s people are as ‘worms’ in humble thoughts of themselves, and in their enemies’ haughty thoughts of them; worms, but not vipers, or of the serpent’s seed.” [Henry].

_ _ men — The parallelism requires the word “men” here to have associated with it the idea of fewness or feebleness. Lowth translates, “Ye mortals of Israel.” The Septuagint, “altogether diminutive.” Maurer supports English Version, which the Hebrew text best accords with.

_ _ the Lord — in general.

_ _ and thy redeemer — in particular; a still stronger reason why He should “help” them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 41:10-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 41:14

Thou worm — Who art weak in thyself, and trodden under foot by thy proud enemies.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 41:14

Fear not, thou (m) worm Jacob, [and] ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

(m) Thus he calls them because they were contemned of all the world, and that they considering their own poor estate should seek him for help.
