SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:2 He aquí oh Dios, salud mía; me aseguraré, y no temeré; porque mi fortaleza y mi canción es JAH, el SEÑOR, el cual ha sido salud para mí.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 12:2 Verse 2. The Lord JEHOVAH] The word hy Yah read here is probably a mistake; and arose originally from the custom of the Jewish scribes, who, when they found a line too short for the word, wrote as many letters as filled it, and then began the next line with the whole word. In writing the word hwhy Jehovah, the line might terminate with hy Yah, the two first letters; and then at the beginning of the next line the whole word hwhy Yehovah would be written. This might give rise to hwhy hy Yah Yehovah.
The Yah is wanting here in two of Dr. Kennicott's MSS., in one ancient MS. of my own, and in the Septuagint, Vulgate, Syriac, and Arabic. See Houbigant and De Rossi.
My song] The pronoun is here necessary; and it is added by the Septuagint, Vulgate, and Syriac, who read ytrmz zimrathi, as it is in a MS. Two MSS. omit hy Yah, see Houbigant, not. in loc. Another MS. has it in one word, hytrmz zimrathyah. Seven others omit hwhy Yehovah. See Exod. xv. 2, with Var. Lect. Kennicott.
Matthew Henry Commentary
This is a hymn of praise suited to the times of the Messiah.
The song of praise in this chapter is suitable for the return of the outcasts of Israel from their long captivity, but it is especiall suitable to the case of a sinner, when he first finds peace and joy i believing; to that of a believer, when his peace is renewed afte corrections for backslidings; and to that of the whole company of the redeemed, when they meet before the throne of God in heaven. The promise is sure, and the blessings contained in it are very rich; an the benefits enjoyed through Jesus Christ, call for the most enlarge thanksgivings. By Jesus Christ, the Root of Jesse, the Divine ange against mankind was turned away, for he is our Peace. Those to whom God is reconciled, he comforts. They are taught to triumph in God and their interest in him. I will trust him to prepare me for his salvation, an preserve me to it. I will trust him with all my concerns, not doubtin but he will make all to work for good. Faith in God is a sovereig remedy against tormenting fears. Many Christians have God for their strength, who have him not for their song; they walk in darkness: but those who have God for their strength ought to make him their song that is, give him the glory of it, and take to themselves the comfor of it. This salvation is from the love of God the Father, it comes to us through God the Son, it is applied by the new-creating power of God the Spirit. When this is seen by faith, the trembling sinner learns to hope in God, and is delivered from fear. The purifying and sanctifyin influences of the Holy Ghost often are denoted under the emblem of springing water. This work flows through the mediation of Christ, an is conveyed to our souls by means of God's ordinances. Blessed be God we have wells of salvation opened on every side, and may draw from the the waters of life and consolation. In the second part of this gospe song, Is. 12:4-6, believers encourage one another to praise God, an seek to draw others to join them in it. No difference of opinions abou the times and seasons, and other such matters, ought to divide the hearts of Christians. Let it be our care that we may be placed amongs those to whom he will say, Come, ye blessed of my Father, receive the kingdom prepared for you from the beginning of the world __________________________________________________________________
