Isaiah Chapter 5

CHAPTER FIVE Song of the disappointing vineyard. Meaning of Sh'ohl. The fugitive rhythm, the musical euphony, the charming assonances in this appeal it is impossible to reproduce; they are perfectly inimitable."* So writes Delitzsch of verses 1 and 2 of this chapter; and he continues: "The prophet commenced the first address in chapter 1 as another Moses; the second with the text of an earlier prophecy, and now commences the third as a musician."[* Perhaps, however, even our ear can cat...

Isaiah Chapter 6

CHAPTER SIX The third vision, corresponding with the third book, Leviticus. Isaiah beholds the glory of God; it is that of our Lord Jesus.

But tho...

Isaiah Chapter 4

CHAPTER FOUR The Hebrews wealth was in children: the misery of being childless. The first mention of the "Branch," with effect of His intervention.

The first verse differs from what follows in being written in prose, and forms the superscription of the whole book, itself being a complete "Vision." Through four reigns it extends: reigns in which Jud...

When The Lord Commends Hatred

But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. Rev. 2:6 Here I believe we have a still more specific intimation as to the evil ones, and those false apostles that the Ephesians had tried and exposed. "Those that are evil," and "those that say they are apostles and are not," and "the Nicolaitan," are all intimately related, if indeed they are not all identical, as I believe we shall see them to be. We have thought that the...
