_ _ when I call ... stand up together — (Isaiah 40:26; Jeremiah 33:25). But it is not their creation so much which is meant, as that, like ministers of God, the heavens and the earth are prepared at His command to execute His decrees (Psalms 119:91) [Rosenmuller].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 48:9-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Stand up — They are still continually in readiness to execute my commands.
