    Your eyes - Ye Israelites shall see, in your succeeding generations, that: -

    The Lord will be magnified - By his kindness in Israel, and his judgments beyond.

    Barnes' Notes on Malachi 1:5

    And your eyes shall see - Malicious pleasure in looking on at the misery of Judaea and Jerusalem, had been a special sin of Edom: now God would show Judah the fruit of its reversal, and His goodness toward themselves. , "Ye have assurance of His love toward you and providence over you, when ye see that ye are returned to your own land, and can inhabit it, but they cannot do this: but "they build and I throw down," and ye, therefore, praise and magnify My name for this, and ye shall say, "The Lord shall be magnified on the border of Israel, i. e., His greatness shall be always manifest upon you;" high above and exalted over the border of Israel which shall retain its name, while Edom shall have ceased to be. Wickedness gives its name to Edom's border, as in Zechariah's vision it was removed and settled in Babylon Zechariah 5:8, Zechariah 5:11.

    Wesley's Notes on Malachi 1:5

    1:5 From the border of Israel - Let Israel from all his borders give God praise.
