Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 48:20

_ _ Go ... forth ... end of the earth — Primarily, a prophecy of their joyful deliverance from Babylon, and a direction that they should leave it when God opened the way. But the publication of it “to the ends of the earth” shows it has a more world-wide scope antitypically; Revelation 18:4 shows that the mystical Babylon is ultimately meant.

_ _ redeemed ... Jacob — (Isaiah 43:1; Isaiah 44:22, Isaiah 44:23).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 48:16-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 48:20

Singing — With joy and songs of praise. Declare — Publish God's wonderful works.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 48:20

(y) After he had forewarned them of their captivity and of the reason for it, he shows them the great joy that will come of their deliverance.
