Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 44:24-28.


Isaiah 44:26

_ _ servant — in a collective sense, for the prophets in general, who foretold the return from Babylon; answering to “His messengers” (plural, in the parallel clause) [Maurer]. Antitypically, and ultimately, Messiah, who is the consummating embodiment of all the prophets and messengers of God (Malachi 3:1; Matthew 21:34, Matthew 21:36, Matthew 21:37; John 10:36); hence the singular, “His servant.”

_ _ counsel — predictions; prophets’ counsels concern the future (compare “counsellor,” Isaiah 41:28).

_ _ Jerusalem — regarded prophetically, as lying in ruins.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 44:21-28.
