Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 43:4

_ _ Since — All along from the beginning; for there was never a time when Israel was not Jehovah’s people. The apodosis should be at, “I will give.” “Since ever thou wast precious in My sight, honorable, and that I loved thee, I will give,” etc. [Maurer]. Gesenius, as English Version, takes “Since” to mean, “Inasmuch as.” If the apodosis be as in English Version, “Since thou wast precious” will refer to the time when God called His people out of Egypt, manifesting then first the love which He had from everlasting towards them (Jeremiah 31:3; Hosea 11:1); “honorable” and “loved,” refer to outward marks of honor and love from God.

_ _ men ... peopleother nations for thee (so Isaiah 43:3).

_ _ thy life — thy person.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 43:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 43:4

Since — From the time that I chose thee for my people, I have had an affection for thee. Men — As I gave up the Egyptians, so I am ready to give up others to save thee, as occasion requires.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 43:4

Since thou hast been precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give (e) men for thee, and people for thy life.

(e) I will not spare any man, rather than you should perish, for God values one of his faithful more than all the wicked in the world.
