Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 51:11

_ _ (Isaiah 35:10).

_ _ Therefore — assurance of faith; or else the answer of Jehovah corresponding to their prayer. As surely as God redeemed Israel out of Egypt, He shall redeem them from Babylon, both the literal in the age following, and mystical in the last ages (Revelation 18:20, Revelation 18:21). There shall be a second exodus (Isaiah 11:11-16; Isaiah 27:12, Isaiah 27:13).

_ _ singing — image from the custom of singing on a journey when a caravan is passing along the extended plains in the East.

_ _ everlasting joy — (Jude 1:24).

_ _ sorrow ... flee away — (Revelation 21:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 51:9-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
