Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 43:19

_ _ new — unprecedented in its wonderful character (Isaiah 42:9).

_ _ spring forth — as a germinating herb: a beautiful image of the silent but certain gradual growth of events in God’s providence (Mark 4:26-28).

_ _ way in ... wilderness — just as Israel in the wilderness, between the Red Sea and Canaan, was guided, and supplied with water by Jehovah; but the “new” deliverance shall be attended with manifestations of God’s power and love, eclipsing the old (compare Isaiah 41:17-19). “I will open a way, not merely in the Red Sea, but in the wilderness of the whole world; and not merely one river shall gush out of the rock, but many, which shall refresh, not the bodies as formerly, but the souls of the thirsty, so that the prophecy shall be fulfilled: ‘With joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation’” [Jerome]. “A way” often stands for the true religion (Acts 9:2; Acts 18:26). “Rivers” express the influences of the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39). Israel’s literal restoration hereafter is included, as appears by comparing Isaiah 11:15, Isaiah 11:16.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 43:14-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 43:19

A new thing — Such a work as was never yet done in the world. Now — The scripture often speaks of things at a great distance of time, as if they were now at hand; to make us sensible of the inconsiderableness of time, and all temporal things, in comparison of God, and eternal things; upon which account it is said, that a thousand years are in God's sight but as one day.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 43:19

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the (t) wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert.

(t) Meaning, that their deliverance out of Babylon would be more famous than that from Egypt was, (Jeremiah 23:7; Haggai 2:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Revelation 21:5, Revelation 21:7).
