CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Thou preparedst room before it - The Hebrew word used here means properly to turn; to turn the back; then, to turn in order to look at anything; to look upon; to see; then, in Piel, to cause to turn away; to remove. Then it comes to mean to remove, or to clear from impediments so as to prepare a way Isaiah 40:3; Isaiah 57:14; Isaiah 62:10; Malachi 3:1, and hence, to remove the impediments to planting a vine, etc.; to wit, by clearing away the trees, brush, stones, etc. Compare Isaiah 5:2. Here it means that the hindrances in planting the vine were taken out of the way; that is, God removed the pagan so that there was room then to establish his own people.
And didst cause it to take deep root - Hebrew, "And didst cause it to root roots;" that is, Its roots struck deep into the soil, and the plant became firm.
And it filled the land - Its branches ran everywhere, so as to fill the whole land. See the notes at Isaiah 16:8.

"I will send hornets ahead of you so that they will drive out the Hivites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites before you.
Then I sent the hornet before you and it drove out the two kings of the Amorites from before you, but not by your sword or your bow.
You with Your own hand drove out the nations; Then You planted them; You afflicted the peoples, Then You spread them abroad.
He dug it all around, removed its stones, And planted it with the choicest vine. And He built a tower in the middle of it And also hewed out a wine vat in it; Then He expected it to produce good grapes, But it produced only worthless ones.
I will be like the dew to Israel; He will blossom like the lily, And he will take root like the cedars of Lebanon.
