Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 63:8

_ _ he — Jehovah “said,” that is, thought, in choosing them as His covenant-people; so “said” (Psalms 95:10). Not that God was ignorant that the Jews would not keep faith with Him; but God is here said, according to human modes of thought to say within Himself what He might naturally have expected, as the result of His goodness to the Jews; thus the enormity of their unnatural perversity is the more vividly set forth.

_ _ lie — prove false to Me (compare Psalms 44:17).

_ _ so — in virtue of His having chosen them, He became their Savior. So the “therefore” (Jeremiah 31:33). His eternal choice is the ground of His actually saving men (Ephesians 1:3, Ephesians 1:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 63:7-14.
