Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 49:22

_ _ lift ... hand — that is, beckon to (see on Isaiah 13:2).

_ _ standard — (Isaiah 11:12).

_ _ bring ... sons in ... arms — The Gentiles shall aid in restoring Israel to its own land (Isaiah 60:4; Isaiah 66:20). Children able to support themselves are carried on the shoulders in the East; but infants, in the arms, or astride on one haunch (Isaiah 60:12). “Thy sons” must be distinct from “the Gentiles,” who carry them; and therefore cannot primarily refer to converts among the Gentiles.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 49:18-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 49:22

Behold — I will call them to me. Set my standard — As generals do to gather their forces together. Thy sons — Those who shall be thine by adoption, that shall own God for their father, and Jerusalem for their mother. Carried — With great care and tenderness, as nurses carry young infants. Carried — As sick or infirm persons used to be carried.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 49:22

Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I will lift up my hand to the (a) Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring thy sons in [their] arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon [their] shoulders.

(a) He shows that Christ will not only gather this great number from the Jews but also from the Gentiles.
