Isaiah 42:1 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Jehovah has thus placed Himself in opposition to the heathen and their gods, as the God of history and prophecy. It now remains to be seen whether the idols will speak, to prove their deity. By no means; not only are they silent, but they cannot speak. Therefore Jehovah breaks out into words of wrath and contempt. "Behold, ye are of nothing, and your doing of nought: an abomination whoever chooseth you." The two מן are partitive, as in Isaiah 40:17; and מאפע is not an error of the pen for מאפס, as Gesenius and others suppose, but אפע from עפע equals פּה (from which comes פּה), פּעה, Isaiah 42:14 (from which comes אפעה, Isaiah 59:5), to breathe, stands as a synonym to און, הבל, רוח. The attributive clause בּכם יבחר (supply אשׁר חוּא) is a virtual subject (Ewald, 333, b): ye and your doings are equally nil; and whoever chooses you for protectors, and makes you the objects of his worship, is morally the most degraded of beings.
