    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:1

    ¶ Envíad cordero al enseoreador de la tierra, desde la piedra del desierto al Monte de la hija de Sion.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 16:1

    Verse 1. Send ye the
    lamb, &c. "I will send forth the son, &c."] Both the reading and meaning of this verse are still more doubtful than those of the preceding. The Septuagint and Syriac read jla eshlach, I will send, in the first person singular, future tense: the Vulgate and Talmud Babylon, read jl shelach, send, singular imperative: some read wjl shilchu, send ye forth, or shalechu, they send forth. The Syriac, for rk car, a lamb, reads rb bar, a son, which is confirmed by five MSS. of Kennicott and De Rossi. The two first verses describe the distress of Moab on the Assyrian invasion in which even the son of the prince of the country is represented as forced to flee for his life through the desert, that he may escape to Judea; and the young women are driven forth like young birds cast out of the nest, and endeavouring to wade through the fords of the river Arnon.

    Perhaps there is not so much difficulty in this verse as appears at first view. "Send the lamb to the ruler of the land," may receive light from 2 Kings iii. 4, 5: "And Mesha, king of Moab, was a sheepmaster, and rendered unto the king of Israel one hundred thousand lambs with their wool, and one hundred thousand rams: but when Ahab was dead, the king of Moab rebelled against Israel." Now the prophet exhorts them to begin paying the tribute as formerly, that their punishment might be averted or mitigated.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    Moab is exhorted to yield obedience. (Is. 16:1-5) The pride and the judgments of Moab. (Is. 16:6-14)

    Is. 16:1-5 God tells sinners what they may do to prevent ruin; so he does to Moab. Let them send the tribute they formerly engaged to pay to Judah. Take it as good advice. Break off thy sins by righteousness, it may lengthen thy quiet. And this may be applied to the great gospe duty of submission to Christ. Send him the lamb, the best you have yourselves a living sacrifice. When you come to God, the great Ruler come in the name of the Lamb, the Lamb of God. Those who will no submit to Christ, shall be as a bird that wanders from her nest, whic shall be snatched up by the next bird of prey. Those who will not yiel to the fear of God, shall be made to yield to the fear of every thin else. He advises them to be kind to the seed of Israel. Those tha expect to find favour when in trouble themselves, must show favour to those in trouble. What is here said concerning the throne of Hezekiah also belongs, in a much higher sense, to the kingdom of Jesus Christ Though by subjection to Him we may not enjoy worldly riches or honours but may be exposed to poverty and contempt, we shall have peace of conscience and eternal life.

    Is. 16:6-14 Those who will not be counselled, cannot be helped. Mor souls are ruined by pride than by any other sin whatever. Also, the very proud are commonly very passionate. With lies many seek to gai the gratification of pride and passion, but they shall not compas proud and angry projects. Moab was famous for fields and vineyards; but they shall be laid waste by the invading army. God can soon tur laughter into mourning, and joy into heaviness. In God let us alway rejoice with holy triumph; in earthly things let us always rejoice with holy trembling. The prophet looks with concern on the desolations of such a pleasant country; it causes inward grief. The false gods of Moa are unable to help; and the God of Israel, the only true God, can an will make good what he has spoken. Let Moab know her ruin is very near and prepare. The most awful declarations of Divine wrath, discover the way of escape to those who take warning. There is no escape, but by submission to the Son of David, and devoting ourselves to him. And, a length, when the appointed time comes, all the glory, prosperity, an multitude of the wicked shall perish __________________________________________________________________
