Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 46:3

_ _ in contrast to what precedes: Babylon’s idols, so far from bearing its people safely are themselves borne off, a burden to the laden beast; but Jehovah bears His people in safety even from the womb to old age (Isaiah 63:9; Deuteronomy 32:11; Psalms 71:6, Psalms 71:18). God compares Himself to a nurse tenderly carrying a child; contrast Moses’ language (Numbers 11:12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 46:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 46:3

Carried — Whom I have nourished, ever since you were a people, and came out of Egypt; and that as tenderly, as parents bring up their own children.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 46:3

Hearken to me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are (e) borne [by me] from the birth, which are carried from the womb:

(e) He shows the difference between the idols and the true God; for they must be carried by others, but God himself carries his, as in (Deuteronomy 32:11).
