I S A I A H.
In this chapter we have, I. A threatening of the
paucity and scarceness of man (ver.
1), which might fitly enough have been added to the
close of the foregoing chapter, to which it has a plain reference.
II. A promise of the restoration of Jerusalem's peace and purity,
righteousness and safety, in the days of the Messiah, ver. 2-6. Thus, in wrath, mercy is
remembered, and gospel grace is a sovereign relief, in reference to
the terrors of the law and the desolations made by sin.
