Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 66:2

_ _ have been — namely, made by Me. Or, absolutely, were things made; and therefore belong to Me, the Creator [Jerome].

_ _ look — have regard.

_ _ poor — humble (Isaiah 57:15).

_ _ trembleth at ... word — (2 Kings 22:11, 2 Kings 22:19; Ezra 9:4). The spiritual temple of the heart, though not superseding the outward place of worship, is God’s favorite dwelling (John 14:23). In the final state in heaven there shall be “no temple,” but “the Lord God” Himself (Revelation 21:22).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 66:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 66:2

Have been — They were not only made by God, but kept in being by him. Look — Yet God will look with a favourable eye to him that hath a broken and contrite spirit, whose heart is subdued to the will of God, and who is poor, and low in his own eyes. Trembleth — Who trembleth when he hears God's threatening words, and hears every revelation of his will with reverence.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 66:2

For all these [things] hath my hand made, (b) and all these [things] have been, saith the LORD: but to this [man] will I look, [even] to [him that is] poor and of (c) a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

(b) Seeing that both the temple and the things in it, with the sacrifices were made and done by his appointment, he shows that he has no need of it, and that he can be without them, See Psalms 50:10.

(c) To him that is humble and pure in heart, who receives my doctrine with reverence and fear.
