Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 42:2

_ _ Matthew [Matthew 12:19] marks the kind of “cry” as that of altercation by quoting it, “He shall not strive” (Isaiah 53:7).

_ _ street — the Septuagint translates “outside.” An image from an altercation in a house, loud enough to be heard in the street outside: appropriate of Him who “withdrew Himself” from the public fame created by His miracles to privacy (Matthew 12:15; Matthew 12:34, there, shows another and sterner aspect of His character, which is also implied in the term “judgment”).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 42:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 42:2

Cry — In a way of contention, or ostentation. Lift — His voice. Heard — As contentious and vain — glorious persons frequently do.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 42:2

He shall not (e) cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

(e) His coming will not be with pomp and noise, as earthly princes.
