Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 50:8

_ _ (Isaiah 49:4). The believer, by virtue of his oneness with Christ, uses the same language (Psalms 138:8; Romans 8:32-34). But “justify” in His case, is God’s judicial acceptance and vindication of Him on the ground of His own righteousness (Luke 23:44-47; Romans 1:4; 1 Timothy 3:16, with which compare 1 Peter 3:18); in their case, on the ground of His righteousness and meritorious death imputed to them (Romans 5:19).

_ _ stand together — in judgment, to try the issue.

_ _ adversary — literally, “master of my cause,” that is, who has real ground of accusation against me, so that he can demand judgment to be given in his favor (compare Zechariah 3:1, etc. Revelation 12:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 50:4-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 50:8

Justifieth — God will clear up my righteousness, and shew by many and mighty signs and wonders, that I lived and died his faithful servant. Let him come — l am conscious of mine own innocency, and I know that God will give sentence for me.
