Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 44:1-5.


Isaiah 44:5

_ _ The third clause answers in parallelism to the first, the fourth to the second.

_ _ I am the Lord’s — (Jeremiah 50:5; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 1 Corinthians 6:20; 2 Corinthians 8:5).

_ _ call himself by the name of Jacob — The Gentiles (as the result of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Israel, the Lord’s “seed,” first) shall join themselves to the children of Jacob, in order to worship their God (compare Isaiah 43:7; Psalms 49:11). Or, “calls,” that is, invokes and celebrates the name of Jacob, attaches himself to his nation and religion [Maurer], (Psalms 24:6).

_ _ subscribe ... hand unto ... Lord — in solemn and public covenant, pledging himself to God’s service (compare Nehemiah 9:38), before “witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1), after the manner of a civil contract (Jeremiah 32:10, Jeremiah 32:12, Jeremiah 32:44). So the Christian in the sacraments [Barnes]. Literally, “shall fill his hand with letters (Exodus 32:15; Ezekiel 2:10) in honor of Jehovah”; or “shall write upon his hand, I am Jehovah’s” (compare Isaiah 49:16; Revelation 13:16); alluding to the puncture with ink on the hand, whereby a soldier marked himself as bound to his commander; and whereby the Christians used to mark themselves with the name of Christ [Lowth]. The former view is simpler.

_ _ surname himself ... Israel — Maurer and Gesenius interpret this as the Hebrew sanctions, answering to their rendering of the parallel second clause, “calls blandly (speaks in honorable terms of) the name of Israel.” Retaining English Version, we must, from the Hebrew understand it thus, “Surname himself by the honorable name of Israel” (Isaiah 45:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 44:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 44:5

Israel — The blessing of God upon the Jews shall be so remarkable, that the Gentiles shall join them, and accept the Lord for their God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 44:5

One shall say, I [am] the LORD'S; and another (e) shall call [himself] by the name of Jacob; and another shall write [with] his hand to the LORD, and surname [himself] by the name of Israel.

(e) By this diversity of speech he means one thing, that is, that the people will be holy, and receive the true religion from God, as in (Psalms 87:5).
