Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 56:5

_ _ in mine house — the temple, the emblem of the Church (1 Timothy 3:15). They shall no longer be confined as proselytes were, to the outer court, but shall be admitted “into the holiest” (Hebrews 10:19, Hebrews 10:20).

_ _ a place — literally, “a hand.”

_ _ than of sons — Though the eunuch is barren of children (Isaiah 56:3), I will give him a more lasting name than that of being father of sons and daughters (regarded as a high honor among the Hebrews) (John 1:12; John 10:3; 1 John 3:1; Revelation 2:17; Revelation 3:12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 56:3-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 56:5

In mine house — In my temple. Better — A far greater blessing and honour than that of having posterity, even my favour, and my spirit, and eternal felicity.

Even to them will I give in my (e) house and within my walls a place and a (f) name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

(f) They will be called after my people, and be of the same religion: yea, under Christ the dignity of the faithful will be greater than the Jews were at that time.
