Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 45:10

_ _ If it be wrong for a child, born in less favorable circumstances, to upbraid his parents with having given him birth, a fortiori, it is, to upbraid God for His dealings with us. Rather translate, “a father ... a woman.” The Jews considered themselves exclusively God’s children and were angry that God should adopt the Gentiles besides. Woe to him who says to one already a father, Why dost thou beget other children? [Horsley].
