Bible Commentaries
Isaiah 36

Hawker's Poor Man's CommentaryPoor Man's Commentary

Verse 1


In this, and the three following chapters, the prophet is relating somewhat of the history of the Church, and not delivering a prophecy. He relates in this chapter, the descent of the king of Assyria upon Judah; and dwells largely upon the arrogant blasphemy of his general, Rabshakeh.

Isaiah 36:0

As the great object of this Commentary is to bring the scriptures in a way of explanation to the humblest capacities, and at the same time to suit the scantiest pockets; I think it unnecessary to say more on this chapter, than to Make reference to what hath been already offered on this same history, in the Poor Man's Commentary, on the Second Book of the Kings. If the Reader will consult what was said on 2 Kings 18:0 ; 2 Kings 19:0 , and 2 Kings 20:0 he will find what I hope the Lord will bless to his perusal; to that scripture, therefore, and the observations upon it, I refer him: I only beg him to remark the importance of the scripture itself, as a history, in the Church of God, which cannot be more evident than from this one circumstance, that God the Holy Ghost hath caused it to be twice recorded. My motive for passing it over here, without further observations, I hope the Reader will not mistake; it is to avoid unnecessary repetitions, and rather to lead to the seeking of divine teaching. May the Lord, again and again, bless the perusal of it, both to writer and Reader, to the divine glory, and to our furtherance in salvation.
