Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 52:3

_ _ As you became your foes’ servants, without their paying any price for you (Jeremiah 15:13), so they shall release you without demanding any price or reward (Isaiah 45:13), (where Cyrus is represented as doing so: a type of their final restoration gratuitously in like manner). So the spiritual Israel, “sold under sin,” gratuitously (Romans 7:14), shall be redeemed also gratuitously (Isaiah 55:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 52:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 52:3

Sold yourselves — By your sins, without any valuable consideration paid by them either to you, or to your Lord and owner. Without money — Without paying any ransom.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for (c) nothing; and ye shall be redeemed without money.

(c) The Babylonians paid nothing to me for you: therefore I will take you again without ransom.
