SEV Biblia, Chapter 50:10 Â¶ Â¿Quién hay entre vosotros, que teme al SEÑOR? Oiga la voz de su siervo. El que anduvo en tinieblas, y el que careció de luz, confíe en el nombre del SEÑOR, y recuéstese sobre su Dios.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 50:10 Verse 10. Who is among you that feareth the Lord] I believe this passage has been generally, if not dangerously, misunderstood. It has been quoted, and preached upon, to prove that "a man might conscientiously fear God, and be obedient to the words of the law and the prophets; obey the voice of his servant-of Jesus Christ himself, that is, be sincerely and regularly obedient to the moral law and the commands of our blessed Lord, and yet walk in darkness and have no light, no sense of God's approbation, and no evidence of the safety of his state. " This is utterly impossible; for Jesus hath said, "He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. " If there be some religious persons who, under the influence of morbid melancholy, are continually writing bitter things against themselves, the word of God should not be bent down to their state. There are other modes of spiritual and Scriptural comfort. But does not the text speak of such a case? And are not the words precise in reference to it? I think not: and Bishop Lowth's translation has set the whole in the clearest light, though he does not appear to have been apprehensive that the bad use I mention had been made of the text as it stands in our common Version. The text contains two questions, to each of which a particular answer is given:- Q. 1. "Who is there among you that feareth JEHOVAH? Ans. Let him hearken unto the voice of his servant.
Q. 2. Who that walketh in darkness and hath no light? Ans. Let him trust in the name of Jehovah; And lean himself (prop himself) upon his God." Now, a man awakened to a sense of his sin and misery, may have a dread of JEHOVAH, and tremble at his word, and what should such a person do? Why he should hear what God's servant saith: "Come unto me, all ye who labour and are heavy laden; and I will give you rest. " There may be a sincere penitent, walking in darkness, having no light of salvation; for this is the case of all when they first begin to turn to God. What should such do? They should trust, believe on, the Lord Jesus, who died for them, and lean upon his all-sufficient merits for the light of salvation which God has promised. Thus acting, they will soon have a sure trust and confidence that God for Christ's sake has forgiven them their sin, and thus they shall have the light of life. That obeyeth the voice of his servant "Let him hearken unto the voice of his servant"] For [m shomea, pointed as the participle, the Septuagint and Syriac read [my yishma, future or imperative. This gives a much more elegant turn and distribution to the sentence.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The rejection of the Jews. (Is. 50:1-3) The sufferings and exaltatio of the Messiah. (Is. 50:4-9) Consolation to the believer, and warnin to the unbeliever. (Is. 50:10,11)
Is. 50:1-3 Those who have professed to be people of God, and seem to be dealt severely with, are apt to complain, as if God had been hard with them. Here is an answer for such murmurings; God never deprived any of their advantages, except for their sins. The Jews were sent int Babylon for their idolatry, a sin which broke the covenant; and the were at last rejected for crucifying the Lord of glory. God called of them to leave their sins, and prevent their own ruin. Last of all, the Son came to his own, but his own received him not. When God calls me to happiness, and they will not answer, they are justly left to be miserable. To silence doubts concerning his power, proofs of it ar given. The wonders which attended his sufferings and death, proclaime that he was the Son of God, Matt. 27:54.
Is. 50:4-9 As Jesus was God and man in one person, we find his sometimes speaking, or spoken of, as the Lord God; at other times, a man and the servant of Jehovah. He was to declare the truths whic comfort the broken, contrite heart, those weary of sin, harassed with afflictions. And as the Holy Spirit was upon him, that he might spea as never man spake; so the same Divine influence daily wakened him to pray, to preach the gospel, and to receive and deliver the whole wil of the Father. The Father justified the Son when he accepted the satisfaction he made for the sin of man. Christ speaks in the name of all believers. Who dares to be an enemy to those unto whom he is Friend? or who will contend with those whom he is an Advocate? Thus St Paul applies it, Rom. 8:33.
Is. 50:10,11 A child of God is afraid of incurring his displeasure This grace usually appears most in believers when in darkness, when other graces appear not. Those that truly fear God, obey the voice of Christ. A sincere servant of God may for a long time be without view of eternal happiness. What is likely to be an effectual cure in thi sad case? Let him trust in the name of the Lord; and let him sta himself upon the promises of the covenant, and build his hopes on them Let him trust in Christ, trust in that name of his, The Lord ou Righteousness; stay himself upon God as his God, in and through Mediator. Presuming sinners are warned not to trust in themselves Their own merit and sufficiency are light and heat to them Creature-comforts are as sparks, short-lived, and soon gone; yet the children of this world, while they last, seek to warm themselves by them, and walk with pride and pleasure in the light of them. Those tha make the world their comfort, and their own righteousness their confidence, will certainly meet with bitterness in the end. A godl man's way may be dark, but his end shall be peace and everlastin light. A wicked man's way may be pleasant, but his end and abode for ever will be utter darkness __________________________________________________________________
