    SEV Biblia, Chapter 41:28

    Miré, y no había ninguno; y pregunté de estas cosas, y ningún consejero hubo ; les pregunté, y no respondieron palabra.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 41:28

    Verse 28. Among them "Among the
    idols"] For hlamw umeelleh, I read µylamw umeellim, with the Septuagint, kai apo twn eidwlwn, "and from or among the idols. " See Exod. xv. 11; chap. lvii. 5.

    R. D. Kimchi has many good observations on this chapter. Bishop Lowth follows him in applying it to Abraham, and not to Cyrus; the whole being spoken in the past tense, which is not used, or rarely, in such a case for the future. Almost the whole of the rabbins understand it of Abraham. On Kimchi's plan, the following is a paraphrase.

    The righteous man-Abram, from the eastthe land of his nativity, called the land of the children of the east, Gen. xxix. 1.

    Brought him to his feet-Whithersoever his feet went, he preached righteousness and truth; as it is written, "There he proclaimed in the name of JEHOVAH, "Gen. xxi. 31. And he called it wharqyw vaiyikraehu-that is, qrx tsedek, righteousness, to his feet, enabled him to hold it forth wherever he went.

    He called the nations-To leave their idols and worship him who made the universe. He taught them the way of righteousness, truth, and faith. Was there ever a prodigy like to this? A man who had been an idolater, rising up against all the nations of the earth, reproving their faith, and not fearing before them nor their kings! Who stirred up his heart to do this? Was it not the Lord? Gave the nations before him-And made him rule over kings-Chedorlaomer, and the kings which were with him: whom the Lord gave as dust to his sword, and stubble to his bow.

    He pursued them-He and his three hundred and eighteen servants.

    He passed safely-µwl shalom for µwlb beshalom, in safety; so said, because he lost not one of his men in this expedition. See Kimchi.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    God's care of his people. (Is. 41:1-9) they are encouraged not to fear (Is. 41:10-20) The vanity and folly of idolatry. (Is. 41:21-29)

    Is. 41:1-9 Can any heathen god raise up one in righteousness, make what use of him he pleases, and make him victorious over the nations? The Lord did so with Abraham, or rather, he would do so with Cyrus. Sinner encourage one another in the ways of sin; shall not the servants of the living God stir up one another in his service? God's people are the seed of Abraham his friend. This is certainly the highest title eve given to a mortal. It means that Abraham, by Divine grace, was mad like to God, and that he was admitted to communion with Him. Happy ar the servants of the Lord, whom he has called to be his friends, and to walk with him in faith and holy obedience. Let not such as have thu been favoured yield to fear; for the contest may be sharp, but the victory shall be sure.

    Is. 41:10-20 God speaks with tenderness; Fear thou not, for I am with thee: not only within call, but present with thee. Art thou weak? will strengthen thee. Art thou in want of friends? I will help thee in the time of need. Art thou ready to fall? I will uphold thee with tha right hand which is full of righteousness, dealing forth rewards an punishments. There are those that strive with God's people, that see their ruin. Let not God's people render evil for evil, but wait God' time. It is the worm Jacob; so little, so weak, so despised an trampled on by every body. God's people are as worms, in humbl thoughts of themselves, and in their enemies' haughty thoughts of them worms, but not vipers, not of the serpent's seed. Every part of God' word is calculated to humble man's pride, and to make him appear littl in his own eyes. The Lord will help them, for he is their Redeemer. The Lord will make Jacob to become a threshing instrument. God will make him fit for use, new, and having sharp spikes. This has fulfilment in the triumphs of the gospel of Christ, and of all faithful followers of Christ, over the power of darkness. God has provided comforts to suppl all their wants, and to answer all their prayers. Our way to heave lies through the wilderness of this world. The soul of man is in want and seeks for satisfaction; but becomes weary of seeking that in the world, which is not to be had in it. Yet they shall have a constan supply, where one would least expect it. I will open rivers of grace rivers of living water, which Christ spake of the Spirit, John 7:38,39 When God sets up his church in the Gentile wilderness, there shall be great change, as if thorns and briers were turned into cedars, an fir-trees, and myrtles. These blessings are kept for the poor in spirit, who long for Divine enlightening, pardon, and holiness. And God will render their barren souls fruitful in the grace of his Spirit that all who behold may consider it.

    Is. 41:21-29 There needs no more to show the folly of sin, than to bring to notice the reasons given in defence of it. There is nothing in idols worthy of regard. They are less than nothing, and worse tha nothing. Let the advocates of other doctrines than that of salvatio through Christ, bring their arguments. Can they tell of a cure for human depravity? Jehovah has power which cannot be withstood; this he will make appear. But the certain knowledge of the future must be onl with Jehovah, who fulfils his own plans. All prophecies, except thos of the Bible, have been uncertain. In the work of redemption the Lor showed himself much more than in the release of the Jews from Babylon The good tidings the Lord will send in the gospel, is a mystery his from ages and generations. A Deliverer is raised up for us, of noble name and greater power than the deliverer of the captive Jews. May we be numbered among his obedient servants and faithful friends __________________________________________________________________
