    SEV Biblia, Chapter 29:1

    ¶ ¡Ay de Ariel, ciudad donde habit David! Aadid un ao a otro, los corderos cesarn.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 29:1

    Verse 1.
    Ariel] That Jerusalem is here called by this name is very certain: but the reason of this name, and the meaning of it as applied to Jerusalem, is very obscure and doubtful. Some, with the Chaldee, suppose it to be taken from the hearth of the great altar of burnt-offerings which Ezekiel plainly calls by the same name, and that Jerusalem is here considered as the seat of the fire of God, la rwa ur el which should issue from thence to consume his enemies: compare chap. xxxi. 9. Some, according to the common derivation of the word, la yra ari el, the lion of God, or the strong lion, suppose it to signify the strength of the place, by which it was enabled to resist and overcome all its enemies. tinev de fasi thn polin outwv eirhsqai epei, dia qeou, leontov dikhn esparatte touv antairontav. Procop. in loc. There are other explanations of this name given: but none that seems to be perfectly satisfactory. - Lowth.

    From Ezek. xliii. 15, we learn that Ari-el was the name of the altar of burnt-offerings, put here for the city itself in which that altar was. In the second verse it is said, I will distress Ari-el, and it shall be unto me as Ari-el. The first Ari-el here seems to mean Jerusalem, which should be distressed by the Assyrians: the second Ari-el seems to mean the altar of burntofferings. But why is it said, "Ari-el shall be unto me as Ari-el?" As the altar of burntofferings was surrounded daily by the victims which were offered: so the walls of Jerusalem shall be surrounded by the dead bodies of those who had rebelled against the Lord, and who should be victims to his justice. The translation of Bishop Lowth appears to embrace both meanings: "I will bring distress upon Ari-el; and it shall be to me as the hearth of the great altar." Add ye year to year] Ironically. Go on year after year, keep your solemn feasts; yet know, that God will punish you for your hypocritical worship, consisting of mere form destitute of true piety. Probably delivered at the time of some great feast, when they were thus employed.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    Judgements on Jerusalem and on its enemies. (Is. 29:1-8) The senselessness and hypocrisy of the Jews. (Is. 29:9-16) The conversio of the Gentiles, and future blessings for the Jews. (Is. 29:17-24)

    Is. 29:1-8 Ariel may signify the altar of burnt-offerings. Le Jerusalem know that outward religious services will not make men fre from judgements. Hypocrites never can please God, nor make their peac with him. God had often and long, by a host of angels, encamped roun about Jerusalem for protection and deliverance; but now he fough against it. Proud looks and proud language shall be brought down by humbling providences. The destruction of Jerusalem's enemies i foretold. The army of Sennacherib went as a dream; and thus the multitudes, that through successive ages fight against God's altar an worship, shall fall. Speedily will sinners awake from their soothin dreams in the pains of hell.

    Is. 29:9-16 The security of sinners in sinful ways, is cause for lamentation and wonder. The learned men, through prejudice, said tha the Divine prophecies were obscure; and the poor urged their want of learning. The Bible is a sealed book to every man, learned of unlearned, till he begins to study it with a simple heart and teachable spirit, that he may thence learn the truth and the will of God. To worship God, is to approach him. And if the heart be full of his love and fear, out of the abundance of it the mouth will speak; but there are many whose religion is lip-labour only. When they pretend to be speaking to God, they are thinking of a thousand foolish things They worship the God of Israel according to their own devices. Number are only formal in worship. And their religion is only to comply with custom, and to serve their own interest. But the wanderings of mind and defects in devotion, which are the believer's burden, are very different from the withdrawing of the heart from God, so severel blamed. And those who make religion no more than a pretence, to serve turn, deceive themselves. And as those that quarrel with God, so thos that think to conceal themselves from him, in effect charge him with folly. But all their perverse conduct shall be entirely done away.

    Is. 29:17-24 The wonderful change here foretold, may refer to the affairs of Judah, though it looks further. When a great harvest of souls was gathered to Christ from among the Gentiles, then the wilderness was turned into a fruitful field; and the Jewish church that had long been a fruitful field, became as a deserted forest. Thos who, when in trouble, can truly rejoice in God, shall soon have caus greatly to rejoice in him. The grace of meekness contributes to the increase of our holy joy. The enemies who were powerful shall becom mean and weak. To complete the repose of God's people, the scorners a home shall be cut off by judgements. All are apt to speak unadvisedly and to mistake what they hear, but it is very unfair to make a man a offender for a word. They did all they could to bring those int trouble who told them of their faults. But He that redeemed Abraham ou of his snares and troubles, will redeem those who are, by faith, his true seed, out of theirs. It will be the greatest comfort to godl parents to see their children renewed creatures, the work of God' grace. May those who now err in spirit, and murmur against the truth come to understanding, and learn true doctrine. The Spirit of trut shall set right their mistakes, and lead them into all truth. Thi should encourage us to pray for those that have erred, and ar deceived. All who murmured at the truths of God, as hard sayings, shal learn and be aware what God designed in all. See the change religio produces in the hearts of men, and the peace and pleasure of a humbl and devout spirit __________________________________________________________________
