Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 45:21

_ _ Challenge the worshippers of idols (Isaiah 41:1).

_ _ take counsel together — as to the best arguments wherewith to defend the cause of idolatry.

_ _ who ... from that time — (Isaiah 41:22, Isaiah 41:23; see on Isaiah 44:8). Which of the idols has done what God hath, namely, foretold, primarily as to Cyrus; ultimately as to the final restoration of Israel hereafter? The idolatry of Israel before Cyrus’ time will have its counterpart in the Antichrist and the apostasy, which shall precede Christ’s manifestation.

_ _ just ... and ... Saviorrighteous in keeping His promises, and therefore a Savior to His people. Not only is it not inconsistent with, but it is the result of, His righteousness, or justice, that He should save His redeemed (Isaiah 42:6, Isaiah 42:21; Psalms 85:10, Psalms 85:11; Romans 3:26).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 45:20-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 45:21

Take counsel — To maintain the cause of their idols. This — This great work, Babylon's destruction, and the redemption of God's people.
