Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 48:12-15.

Isaiah 48:14

_ _ among them — among the gods and astrologers of the Chaldees (Isaiah 41:22; Isaiah 43:9; Isaiah 44:7).

_ _ Lord ... loved him; he will, etc. — that is, “He whom the Lord hath loved will do,” etc. [Lowth]; namely, Cyrus (Isaiah 44:28; Isaiah 45:1, Isaiah 45:13; Isaiah 46:11). However, Jehovah’s language of love is too strong to apply to Cyrus, except as type of Messiah, to whom alone it fully applies (Revelation 5:2-5).

_ _ his pleasure — not Cyrus’ own, but Jehovah’s.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 48:9-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 48:14

Which — Which of the gods whom any of you serve. Him — Cyrus.
