SEV Biblia, Chapter 65:8 Â¶ Así dijo el SEÑOR: Como si alguno hallase mosto en un racimo, y dijese: No lo eches a mal, que bendición hay en él; así haré yo por mis siervos, que no lo echaré a perder todo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 65:8 Verse 8. A blessing is in it] The Hebrews call all things which serve for food hkrb berachah, "a blessing. " On this verse Kimchi remarks: "As the cluster of grapes contains, besides the juice, the bark, and the kernels, so the Israelites have, besides the just, sinners among them. Now as the cluster must not be destroyed because there is a blessing, a nutritive part in it; so Israel shall not be destroyed, because there are righteous persons in it. But as the bark and kernels are thrown away, when the wine is pressed out, so shall the sinners be purged away from among the just, and on their return from exile, shall not be permitted to enter into the land of Israel; " Ezek. xx. 38.
For my servant's sakes "For the sake of my servant"] It is to be observed that one of the Koningsburg MSS. collated by Lilienthal points the word ydb[ abdi, singular; that is, "my servant, "meaning the Messiah; and so read the Septuagint, which gives a very good sense. In two of my old MSS. it is pointed ydb[ abadai, and ydb[ abdi, "my servant, "this confirms the above reading.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The calling of the Gentiles, and the rejection of the Jews. (Is 65:1-7) The Lord would preserve a remnant. (Is. 65:8-10) Judgments upo the wicked. (Is. 65:11-16) The future happy and flourishing state of the church. (Is. 65:17-25)
Is. 65:1-7 The Gentiles came to seek God, and find him, because the were first sought and found of him. Often he meets some thoughtles trifler or profligate opposer, and says to him, Behold me; and a speed change takes place. All the gospel day, Christ waited to be gracious The Jews were bidden, but would not come. It is not without cause the are rejected of God. They would do what most pleased them. The grieved, they vexed the Holy Spirit. They forsook God's temple, an sacrificed in groves. They cared not for the distinction between clea and unclean meats, before it was taken away by the gospel. Perhaps thi is put for all forbidden pleasures, and all that is thought to be gotten by sin, that abominable thing which the Lord hates. Chris denounced many woes against the pride and hypocrisy of the Jews. The proof against them is plain. And let us watch against pride an self-preference, remembering that every sin, and the most secre thoughts of man's heart, are known and will be judged by God.
Is. 65:8-10 In the bunch of unripe grapes, at present of no value, the new wine is contained. The Jews have been kept a distinct people, tha all may witness the fulfilment of ancient prophecies and promises God's chosen, the spiritual seed of praying Jacob, shall inherit his mountains of bliss and joy, and be carried safe to them through the vale of tears. All things are for the display of God's glory in the redemption of sinners.
Is. 65:11-16 Here the different states of the godly and wicked, of the Jews who believed, and of those who persisted in unbelief, are se against one another. They prepared a table for that troop of deitie which the heathen worship, and poured out drink-offerings to tha countless number. Their worshippers spared no cost to honour them which should shame the worshippers of the true God. See the malignit of sin; it is doing by choice what we know will displease God. In ever age and nation, the Lord leaves those who persist in doing evil, an despise the call of the gospel. God's servants shall have the bread of life, and shall want nothing good for them. But those who forsake the Lord, shall be ashamed of vain confidence in their own righteousness and the hopes they built thereon. Wordly people bless themselves in the abundance of this world's goods; but God's servants bless themselves in him. He is their strength and portion. They shall honour him as the God of truth. And it was promised that in him should all the families of the earth be blessed. They shall think themselves happy in having his for their God, who made them forget their troubles.
Is. 65:17-25 In the grace and comfort believers have in and from Christ, we are to look for this new heaven and new earth. The forme confusions, sins and miseries of the human race, shall be no mor remembered or renewed. The approaching happy state of the church i described under a variety of images. He shall be thought to die in his youth, and for his sins, who only lives to the age of a hundred years The event alone can determine what is meant; but it is plain tha Christianity, if universal, would so do away violence and evil, a greatly to lengthen life. In those happy days, all God's people shal enjoy the fruit of their labours. Nor will children then be the troubl of their parents, or suffer trouble themselves. The evil disposition of sinners shall be completely moritified; all shall live in harmony Thus the church on earth shall be full of happiness, like heaven. Thi prophecy assures the servants of Christ, that the time approaches wherein they shall be blessed with the undisturbed enjoyment of all that is needful for their happiness. As workers together with God, le us attend his ordinances, and obey his commands __________________________________________________________________
