Isaiah 62

Gaebelein's Annotated BibleGaebelein's Annotated

Verses 1-12


Zion’s Glory

1. He will not rest (Isaiah 62:1 ) 2. The new names (Isaiah 62:2-5 ) 3. The intercession and the answer (Isaiah 62:6-9 ) 4. The accomplishment at hand (Isaiah 62:10-12 ) The intercession in the beginning of the chapter is that of Christ. He will not rest till He has accomplished His purpose in His earthly people and in Zion. When it is accomplished Gentiles and kings will witness it. Zion then shall be called by a new name. The forsaken one will no longer be forsaken; the desolation of the land will cease. She shall be called Hephzibah (my delight in her) ; the land will be Beulah (married). All points to the glorious consummation of the kingdom, and other watchmen intercede and give Him no rest till He establish and make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Faithful Jews, men of prayer will during the great tribulation call on God to make good His Word and fulfil His promises. May God’s people even now plead and intercede for the hastening of all His purposes. “Behold, thy salvation cometh, behold His reward is with Him and His work before Him.” Note the results of His coming in Isaiah 62:12 .
