(39) I, even I, am he, and there is no God with me.--There are many very similar passages in Isaiah 41-46; but none of them exactly reproduces this sentence.

I kill, and I make alive.--This was repeated by Hannah in her song, "The Lord killeth and maketh alive" (1Samuel 2:6). Comp. also Isaiah 43:13, "Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand."

Verse 39. - See now that I am, even I am he. The Hebrew is more expressive, See now that I, I am; LXX., ἴδετε ἴδετε ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι (cf. Isaiah 41:4; Isaiah 48:12; John 8:24 18:5). Their own experience of the utter impotency of these idol-gods to help them or to protect themselves flora the stroke of the Almighty was enough to convince them that they were no gods, and that he alone was to be feared and worshipped.
