SEV Biblia, Chapter 27:1 Â¶ En aquel día el SEÑOR visitará con su espada dura, grande y fuerte, sobre el leviatán, serpiente huidora, y sobre el leviatán serpiente retuerta; y matará al dragón que está en el mar.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 27:1 Verse 1. Leviathan] The animals here men tioned seem to be the crocodile, rigid by the stiffness of the backbone, so that he cannot readily turn himself when he pursues his prey; hence the easiest way of escaping from him is by making frequent and short turnings: the serpent or dragon, flexible and winding, which coils himself up in a circular form: and the sea monster, or whale. These are used allegorically, without doubt for great potentates, enemies and persecutors of the people of God: but to specify the particular persons or states designed by the prophet under these images, is a matter of great difficulty, and comes not necessarily with in the design of these notes. R. D. Kimchi says, leviathan is a parable concerning the kings of the Gentiles: it is the largest fish in the sea, called also ynt tannin, the dragon, or rather the whale. By these names the Grecian, Turkish, and Roman empires are intended. The dragon of the sea seems to mean some nation having a strong naval force and extensive commerce. See Kimchi on the place.
Matthew Henry Commentary
God's care over his people. (Is. 27:1-5) A promise of their recall to Divine favour. (Is. 27:6-13)
Is. 27:1-5 The Lord Jesus with his strong sword, the virtue of his death, and the preaching of his gospel, does and will destroy him tha had the power of death, that is, the devil, that old serpent. The worl is a fruitless, worthless wilderness; but the church is a vineyard, place that has great care taken of it, and from which precious fruit are gathered. God will keep it in the night of affliction an persecution, and in the day of peace and prosperity, the temptations of which are not less dangerous. God also takes care of the fruitfulnes of this vineyard. We need the continual waterings of Divine grace; i these be at any time withdrawn, we wither, and come to nothing. Thoug God sometimes contends with his people, yet he graciously waits to be reconciled unto them. It is true, when he finds briers and thorn instead of vines, and they are set in array against him, he will trea them down and burn them. Here is a summary of the doctrine of the gospel, with which the church is to be watered every moment. Ever sinc sin first entered, there has been, on God's part, a righteous quarrel but, on man's part, most unrighteous. Here is a gracious invitatio given. Pardoning mercy is called the power of our Lord; let us tak hold on that. Christ crucified is the power of God. Let us by livel faith take hold on his strength who is a strength to the needy believing there is no other name by which we can be saved, as a ma that is sinking catches hold of a bough, or cord, or plank, that is in his reach. This is the only way, and it is a sure way, to be saved. God is willing to be reconciled to us.
Is. 27:6-13 In the days of the gospel, the latter days, the gospe church shall be more firmly fixed than the Jewish church, and shal spread further. May our souls be continually watered and kept, that we may abound in the fruits of the Spirit, in all goodness, righteousness and truth. The Jews yet are kept a separate and a numerous people; the have not been rooted out as those who slew them. The condition of tha nation, through so many ages, forms a certain proof of the Divin origin of the Scriptures; and the Jews live amongst us, a continue warning against sin. But though winds are ever so rough, ever so high God can say to them, Peace, be still. And though God will afflict his people, yet he will make their afflictions to work for the good of their souls. According to this promise, since the captivity in Babylon no people have shown such hatred to idols and idolatry as the Jews. An to all God's people, the design of affliction is to part between the and sin. The affliction has done us good, when we keep at a distanc from the occasions of sin, and use care that we may not be tempted to it. Jerusalem had been defended by grace and the Divine protection; but when God withdrew, she was left like a wilderness. This has awfull come to pass. And this is a figure of the deplorable state of the vineyard, the church, when it brought forth wild grapes. Sinner flatter themselves they shall not be dealt with severely, because God is merciful, and is their Maker. We see how weak those pleas will be Verses 12,13, seem to predict the restoration of the Jews after the Babylonish captivity, and their recovery from their present dispersion This is further applicable to the preaching of the gospel, by whic sinners are gathered into the grace of God; the gospel proclaims the acceptable year of the Lord. Those gathered by the sounding of the gospel trumpet, are brought in to worship God, and added to the church and the last trumpet will gather the saints together __________________________________________________________________
