CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Which are borne by me from the belly "Ye that have been borne by me from the birth" - The prophet very ingeniously, and with great force, contrasts the power of God, and his tender goodness effectually exerted towards his people, with the inability of the false gods of the heathen.

From birth I was cast on you; from my mother's womb you have been my God.
Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother's womb. I will ever praise you.
Unless the LORD Almighty had left us some survivors, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah.
Those who are left in Zion, who remain in Jerusalem, will be called holy, all who are recorded among the living in Jerusalem.
In that day the remnant of Israel, the survivors of Jacob, will no longer rely on him who struck them down but will truly rely on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel.
