Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 63:5

_ _ The same words as in Isaiah 59:16, except that there it is His “righteousness,” here it is His “fury,” which is said to have upheld Him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 63:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 63:5

None to help — Not that he needed it, but to see what men would do, in regard his people needed it; therefore the standing, or not standing by his people, is the same thing with standing, or not standing by him. Uphold — A metaphor, taken from a staff, that is an help to one that leans on it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 63:5

And I looked, and [there was] none to help; and I wondered that [there was] none to uphold: therefore my own (e) arm brought salvation to me; and my fury, it upheld me.

(e) God shows that he has no need of man's help for the deliverance of his, and though men refuse to do their duty through negligence and ingratitude, yet he himself will deliver his Church, and punish the enemies, (Isaiah 59:16).
