(26) That confirmeth the word of his servant.--The parallelism of "servant" in the singular with "messengers" in the plural suggests the thought that the prophet is not speaking of himself, but of Israel, as the ideal "servant of the Lord," the prophetic nation represented by the individual "messengers" or prophets. Comp. as to the word Isaiah 42:19; Malachi 3:1, and that prophet's own name ("my messenger").

Verse 26. - That confirmeth the word of his servant; that is, of Isaiah himself, whom God calls "my Servant" in Isaiah 20:3. The "messengers" are the prophets generally. Before the return from the Captivity took place, it had been prophesied, not only by Isaiah, but by Jeremiah (Jeremiah 29:10-14), by Ezekiel (Ezekiel 39:25-28), by Joel 3:1), by Amos (Amos 9:11-15), by Obadiah (Obadiah:20), by Micah (Micah 4:10), and by Zephaniah (Zephaniah 3:14-20).
