Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 62:5

_ _ thy sons — rather, changing the points, which are of no authority in Hebrew, “thy builder” or “restorer,” that is, God; for in the parallel clause, and in Isaiah 62:4, God is implied as being “married” to her; whereas her “sons” could hardly be said to marry their mother; and in Isaiah 49:18, they are said to be her bridal ornaments, not her husband. The plural form, builders, is used of God in reverence as “husbands” (see on Isaiah 54:5).

_ _ over the bride — in the possession of the bride (Isaiah 65:19; Jeremiah 32:41; Zephaniah 3:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 62:1-5.
