    Barnes' Notes on Isaiah 45:5

    I am the Lord ... - (see the notes at Isaiah 42:8; Isaiah 43:2; Isaiah 44:8; Isaiah 45:14, Isaiah 45:18, Isaiah 45:22).

    I girded thee ... - (see the note at Isaiah 45:1). The sense is, I girded thee with the girdle - the military belt; I prepared thee, and strengthened thee for war and conquest. Even people who are strangers to the true God are sustained by him, and are unable to accomplish anything without his providential aid.

    Wesley's Notes on Isaiah 45:5

    45:5 I girded - I made thee strong and active, and disposed thee for these great and warlike enterprizes.
