    SEV Biblia, Chapter 40:6

    Voz que decía: Da voces. Y yo respondí: ¿Qu tengo que decir a voces? Toda carne es hierba, y toda su piedad como flor del campo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 40:6

    Verse 6. The
    voice saint Cry "A voice saith Proclaim"] To understand rightly this passage is a matter of importance; for it seems designed to give us the true key to the remaining part of Isaiah's prophecies, the general subject of which is the restoration of the people and Church of God. The prophet opens the subject with great clearness and elegance: he declares at once God's command to his messengers, (his prophets, as the Chaldee rightly explains it,) to comfort his people in captivity, to impart to them the joyful tidings, that their punishment has now satisfied the Divine justice, and the time of reconciliation and favour is at hand. He then introduces a harbinger giving orders to prepare the way for God, leading his people from Babylon, as he did formerly from Egypt, through the wilderness, to remove all obstacles, and to clear the way for their passage.

    Thus far nothing more appears to be intended than a return from the Babylonish captivity; but the next words seem to intimate something much greater:- "And the glory of JEHOVAH shall be revealed; And all flesh shall see together the salvation of our God." He then introduces a voice commanding him to make a solemn proclamation. And what is the import of it? that the people-the flesh, is of a vain temporary nature; that all its glory fadeth, and is soon gone; but that the word of God endureth for ever. What is this, but a plain opposition of the flesh to the spirit; of the carnal Israel to the spiritual; of the temporary Mosaic economy to the eternal Christian dispensation? You may be ready to conclude, (the prophet may be disposed to say,) by this introduction to my discourse, that my commission is only to comfort you with a promise of the restoration of your religion and polity, of Jerusalem, of the temple, and its services and worship in all its ancient splendour. These are earthly, temporary, shadowy, fading things, which shall soon pass away, and be destroyed for ever; these are not worthy to engage your attention in comparison of the greater blessings, the spiritual redemption, the eternal inheritance, covered under the veil of the former, which I have it in charge to unfold unto you. The law has only a shadow of good things; the substance is the Gospel. I promise you a restoration of the former, which, however, is only for a time, and shall be done away, according to God's original appointment: but under that image I give you a view of the latter, which shall never be done away, but shall endure for ever. This I take to be agreeable to St. Peter's interpretation of this passage of the prophet, quoted by him, 1 Pet. i. 24, 25: "All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth and the flower thereof falleth away; but the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the Gospel is preached unto you. " This is the same word of the Lord of which Isaiah speaks, which hath now been preached unto you by the Gospel. The law and the Gospel are frequently opposed to one another by St. Paul, under the images of flesh and spirit: "Having begun in the spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?" Gal. iii. 3.- L.

    All the Godliness thereof-' "All its glory"] For wdsj chasdo read wdj chadu; the Septuagint and Vulgate, and 1 Pet. i. 24.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    The
    preaching of the gospel, and glad tidings of the coming of Christ (Is. 40:1-11) The almighty power of God. (Is. 40:12-17) The folly of idolatry. (Is. 40:18-26) Against unbelief. (Is. 40:27-31)

    Is. 40:1-11 All human life is a warfare; the Christian life is the mos so; but the struggle will not last always. Troubles are removed in love, when sin is pardoned. In the great atonement of the death of Christ, the mercy of God is exercised to the glory of his justice. In Christ, and his sufferings, true penitents receive of the Lord's han double for all their sins; for the satisfaction Christ made by his death was of infinite value. The prophet had some reference to the return of the Jews from Babylon. But this is a small event, compare with that pointed out by the Holy Ghost in the New Testament, when Joh the Baptist proclaimed the approach of Christ. When eastern prince marched through desert countries, ways were prepared for them, an hinderances removed. And may the Lord prepare our hearts by the teaching of his word and the convictions of his Spirit, that high an proud thoughts may be brought down, good desires planted, crooked an rugged tempers made straight and softened, and every hinderanc removed, that we may be ready for his will on earth, and prepared for his heavenly kingdom. What are all that belongs to fallen man, or all that he does, but as the grass and the flower thereof! And what wil all the titles and possessions of a dying sinner avail, when they leav him under condemnation! The word of the Lord can do that for us, whic all flesh cannot. The glad tidings of the coming of Christ were to be sent forth to the ends of the earth. Satan is the strong man armed; but our Lord Jesus is stronger; and he shall proceed, and do all that he purposes. Christ is the good Shepherd; he shows tender care for youn converts, weak believers, and those of a sorrowful spirit. By his wor he requires no more service, and by his providence he inflicts no mor trouble, than he will strengthen them for. May we know our Shepherd' voice, and follow him, proving ourselves his sheep.

    Is. 40:12-17 All created beings shrink to nothing in comparison with the Creator. When the Lord, by his Spirit, made the world, non directed his Spirit, or gave advice what to do, or how to do it. The nations, in comparison of him, are as a drop which remains in the bucket, compared with the vast ocean; or as the small dust in the balance, which does not turn it, compared with all the earth. Thi magnifies God's love to the world, that, though it is of such smal account and value with him, yet, for the redemption of it, he gave his only-begotten Son, John 3:16. The services of the church can make n addition to him. Our souls must have perished for ever, if the only So of the Father had not given himself for us.

    Is. 40:18-26 Whatever we esteem or love, fear or hope in, more tha God, that creature we make equal with God, though we do not make image or worship them. He that is so poor, that he has scarcely a sacrific to offer, yet will not be without a god of his own. They spared no cos upon their idols; we grudge what is spent in the service of our God. To prove the greatness of God, the prophet appeals to all ages an nations. Those who are ignorant of this, are willingly ignorant. God has the command of all creatures, and of all created things. The prophet directs us to use our reason as well as our senses; to conside who created the hosts of heaven, and to pay our homage to Him. Not on fails to fulfil his will. And let us not forget, that He spake all the promises, and engaged to perform them.

    Is. 40:27-31 The people of God are reproved for their unbelief an distrust of God. Let them remember they took the names Jacob an Israel, from one who found God faithful to him in all his straits. An they bore these names as a people in covenant with Him. Many foolis frets, and foolish fears, would vanish before inquiry into the causes It is bad to have evil thoughts rise in our minds, but worse to tur them into evil words. What they had known, and had heard, wa sufficient to silence all these fears and distrusts. Where God ha begun the work of grace, he will perfect it. He will help those who, in humble dependence on him, help themselves. As the day, so shall the strength be. In the strength of Divine grace their souls shall ascen above the world. They shall run the way of God's commandment cheerfully. Let us watch against unbelief, pride, and self-confidence If we go forth in our own strength, we shall faint, and utterly fall but having our hearts and our hopes in heaven, we shall be carrie above all difficulties, and be enabled to lay hold of the prize of ou high calling in Christ Jesus __________________________________________________________________
