Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 65:15

_ _ curse — The name of “Jew” has been for long a formula of execration (compare Jeremiah 29:22); if one wishes to curse another, he can utter nothing worse than this, “God make thee what the Jew is!” Contrast the formula (Genesis 48:20) [Maurer].

_ _ my chosen — the elect Church, gathered from Jews and Gentiles, called by “another name,” Christians (Acts 11:26). However (see on Isaiah 65:13), as “My chosen,” or “elect,” in Isaiah 65:9, refers to the “seed of Jacob,” the believing Jews, hereafter about to possess their land (Isaiah 65:19, Isaiah 65:22), are ultimately meant by “My chosen,” as contrasted with the unbelieving Jews (“ye”). These elect Jews shall be called by “another,” or a new name, that is, shall no longer be “forsaken” of God for unbelief, but shall be His “delight” and “married” to Him (Isaiah 62:2, Isaiah 62:4).

_ _ thee — unbelieving Israel. Isaiah here speaks of God, whereas in the preceding sentences God Himself spake. This change of persons marks without design how completely the prophet realized God with him and in him, so that he passes, without formally announcing it, from God’s words to his own, and vice versa, both alike being from God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 65:11-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 65:15

A curse — They shall use your names as examples, of the eminent wrath of God upon sinners. Another name — He will not suffer his own people to be called by a name by which idolaters are known.
