Matthew Henry's Commentary on Isaiah 43:21

Commentary on Isaiah 43:14-21

(Read Isaiah 43:14-21)

The deliverance from Babylon is foretold, but there is reference to greater events. The redemption of sinners by Christ, the conversion of the Gentiles, and the recall of the Jews, are described. All that is to be done to rescue sinners, and to bring the believer to glory, is little, compared with that wondrous work of love, the redemption of man.
