Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 49:12

_ _ Sinim — The Arabians and other Asiatics called China Sin, or Tchin; the Chinese had no special name for themselves, but either adopted that of the reigning dynasty or some high-sounding titles. This view of “Sinim” suits the context which requires a people to be meant “from far,” and distinct from those “from the north and from the west” [Gesenius].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 49:7-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 49:12

These — My people shall be gathered from the most remote parts of the earth. He speaks here, and in many other places, of the conversion of the Gentiles, with allusion to that work of gathering, and bringing back the Jews from all parts where they were dispersed, into their own land. Sinim — Either of the Sinites as they are called, Genesis 10:17, who dwelt about the wilderness. Or of Sin, a famous city of Egypt, which may be put for all Egypt, and that for all southern parts.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Behold, these shall come from far: and, lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of (r) Sinim.

(r) Meaning, the south country, so that Christ will deliver his from all the parts of the world.
