Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 60:22

_ _ little one — Even one, and that the smallest in number and rank, shall be multiplied a thousandfold in both respects (Micah 5:2; Matthew 13:31, Matthew 13:32).

_ _ his time — not our time; we might wish to hasten it, but it will come in due time, as in the case of Jesus’ first coming (Galatians 4:4); so in that of the restoration of Israel and the conversion of the world (Isaiah 66:8; Habakkuk 2:3; Acts 1:7; Hebrews 10:37).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 60:15-22.
