Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 54:5


54:5 Thy maker - Will own thee for his spouse. The Lord - Who hath the sovereign command of all men and creatures, and therefore can subdue the Gentiles to thee, and can make thee to increase and multiply in so prodigious a measure, even in thine old age, notwithstanding thy barrenness in the days of thy youth, of which he speaks in the foregoing verse. The God - The God and father of all nations, whereas formerly he was called only the God of Israel.

    In 54:1, those who are barren did not bring forth fruit unto God. In verse 5, he is the husband of his people but they were unfaithful to him when they worshiped other gods. They didn't bear children unto him meaning they were unfruitful in their lack of faith toward him. The children of the desolate are the fruit of idolatry. For those who practice idolatry, the fruit they bear is emptiness.
