I S A I A H.
In this chapter, I. We are sure to find the grace
of Christ, published by himself to a lost world in the everlasting
gospel, under the type and figure of Isaiah's province, which was
to foretel the deliverance of the Jews out of Babylon, ver. 1-3. II. We think we find the
glories of the church of Christ, its spiritual glories, described
under the type and figure of the Jews' prosperity after their
return out of their captivity. 1. It is promised that they decays
of the church shall be repaired, ver.
4. 2. That those from without shall be made serviceable
to the church, ver. 5. 3.
That the church shall be a royal priesthood, maintained by the
riches of the Gentiles, ver.
6. 4. That she shall have honour and joy in lieu of all
her shame and sorrow, ver.
7. 5. That her affairs shall prosper, ver. 8. 6. That prosperity shall enjoy these
blessings, ver. 9. 7. That
righteousness and salvation shall be the eternal matter of the
church's rejoicing and thanksgiving, ver. 10, 11. If the Jewish church was
ever thus blessed, much more shall the Christian church be so, and
all that belong to it.
