“Where is the certificate of your mother’s divorce,
Whom I have put away?
Or which of My creditors is it to whom I have sold you?
For your iniquities you have sold yourselves,
And for your transgressions your mother has been put away.
The Servant begins His song in verse 4.
“The LORD God has given Me
The tongue of the learned,
That I should know how to speak
A word in season to him who is weary.
He awakens Me morning by morning,
He awakens My ear
To hear as the learned.
The LORD God has opened My ear;
And I was not rebellious,
Nor did I turn away.
|Yeshua as a boy, in the temple at Passover|
When Isaiah describes the learning of the Servant, it is clear that the wisdom came from the Father - His learning came morning by morning - and Yeshua did not rebel or turn away. He was obedient. He knew who He was and that He would suffer.
Verse 6 is fulfilled in the gospels and gives us a preliminary prophecy of how the Servant would suffer:
I gave My back to those who struck Me,
And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard;
I did not hide My face from shame and spitting.
This short chapter wraps up with a warning in the last two verses. Fear the LORD and obey His Servant! But those who walk in their own way will lie down in sorrow.
“Who among you fears the LORD?
Who obeys the voice of His Servant?
Who walks in darkness
And has no light?
Let him trust in the name of the LORD
And rely upon his God.
Who encircle yourselves with sparks:
Walk in the light of your fire and in the sparks you have kindled—
This you shall have from My hand:
You shall lie down in torment.
|Yeshua Messiah - Light of the World!|
