Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 44:1-5.

Isaiah 44:4

_ _ they — thy “seed” and “offspring” (Isaiah 44:3).

_ _ as among — needlessly inserted in English Version. Rather, “The seed shall spring up as willows among the grass beside canals of water” [Horsley]. Or, “They shall spring up among the grass (that is, luxuriantly; for what grows in the midst of grass grows luxuriantly) as willows by the water-courses,” which makes the parallel clauses better balanced [Maurer].
