SEV Biblia, Chapter 43:10 Vosotros sois mis testigos, dice el SEÑOR, y mi siervo que yo escogí, para que me conozcáis y creáis, y entendáis, que yo mismo soy ; antes de mí no fue formado Dios, ni lo será después de mí.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 43:10 Verse 10. Ye (the Israelites) are my witnesses-and my servant (the prophet) whom I have chosen, that whatever has been said before concerning Sennacherib has been literally fulfilled. The prophet had predicted it; the Israelites saw it accomplished.
Before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.] This is a most difficult place. Was there a time when God was not? No! Yet he says, before me. Will there be a time in which God will not exist? No! Yet he says, after me. Are not all these words to be referred to his creation? Before me, no god created any thing, nor was there any thing pre-existent but myself. And after me, i.e., after my creation, such as now exists, there shall be no other class of beings formed. This mode of interpretation frees the passage from all embarrassment, and the context perfectly agrees with it. The words my servant, in this verse, the Targum understands of the Messiah.
Matthew Henry Commentary
God's unchangeable love for his people. (Is. 43:1-7) Apostates an idolaters addressed. (Is. 43:8-13) The deliverance from Babylon, an the conversion of the Gentiles. (Is. 43:14-21) Admonition to repent of sin. (Is. 43:22-28)
Is. 43:1-7 God's favour and good-will to his people speak abundan comfort to all believers. The new creature, wherever it is, is of God' forming. All who are redeemed with the blood of his Son, he has se apart for himself. Those that have God for them need not fear who of what can be against them. What are Egypt and Ethiopia, all their live and treasures, compared with the blood of Christ? True believers ar precious in God's sight, his delight is in them, above any people Though they went as through fire and water, yet, while they had God with them, they need fear no evil; they should be born up, and brough out. The faithful are encouraged. They were to be assembled from ever quarter. And with this pleasing object in view, the prophet agai dissuades from anxious fears.
Is. 43:8-13 Idolaters are called to appear in defence of their idols Those who make them, and trust in them, are like unto them. They have the shape and faculties of men; but they have not common sense. But God's people know the power of his grace, the sweetness of his comforts, the kind care of his providence, and the truth of his promise. All servants of God can give such an account of what he ha wrought in them, and done for them, as may lead others to know an believe his power, truth, and love
Is. 43:14-21 The deliverance from Babylon is foretold, but there is reference to greater events. The redemption of sinners by Christ, the conversion of the Gentiles, and the recall of the Jews, are described All that is to be done to rescue sinners, and to bring the believer to glory, is little, compared with that wondrous work of love, the redemption of man.
Is. 43:22-28 Those who neglect to call upon God, are weary of him. The Master tired not the servants with his commands, but they tired his with disobedience. What were the riches of God's mercy toward them? I even I, am he who yet blotteth out thy transgressions. This encourage us to repent, because there is forgiveness with God, and shows the freeness of Divine mercy. When God forgives, he forgets. It is not for any thing in us, but for his mercies' sake, his promise' sake especially for his Son's sake. He is pleased to reckon it his honour Would man justify himself before God? The attempt is desperate: ou first father broke the covenant, and we all have copied his example. We have no reason to expect pardon, except we seek it by faith in Christ and that is always attended by true repentance, and followed by newnes of life, by hatred of sin, and love to God. Let us then put him in remembrance of the promises he has made to the penitent, and the satisfaction his Son has made for them. Plead these with him in wrestling for pardon; and declare these things, that thou mayest be justified freely by his grace. This is the only way, and it is a sure way to peace __________________________________________________________________
