Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 6:8

_ _ I ... us — The change of number indicates the Trinity (compare Genesis 1:26; Genesis 11:7). Though not a sure argument for the doctrine, for the plural may indicate merely majesty, it accords with that truth proved elsewhere.

_ _ Whom ... who — implying that few would be willing to bear the self-denial which the delivering of such an unwelcome message to the Jews would require on the part of the messenger (compare 1 Chronicles 29:5).

_ _ Here am I — prompt zeal, now that he has been specially qualified for it (Isaiah 6:7; compare 1 Samuel 3:10, 1 Samuel 3:11; Acts 9:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 6:5-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 6:8

Who — To deliver the following message. The change of the number, I and us, is very remarkable; and both being meant of one and the same Lord, do sufficiently intimate a plurality of persons in the Godhead.
