Scofield's Reference NotesScofield's Notes

Verse 1

Prayer

Prayer in the O.T. is in contrast with prayer in the N.T. in two respects:

(1) In the former the basis of prayer is a covenant of God, or an appeal to his revealed character as merciful, gracious, etc. In the latter the basis is relationship: "When ye pray, say, Our Father" Matthew 6:9.

(2) A comparison, e.g. of the prayers of Moses and Paul, will show that one was praying for an earthly people whose dangers and blessings were earthly; the other for a heavenly people whose dangers and blessings were spiritual.

Verse 7

Cushan

Or, Ethiopia.

Verse 11

at the light

Or, thine arrows walked in the light, etc.

Verse 17

Although

i.e. despite the afflictions of Israel in dispersion, the prophet will rejoice because of the Lord, as yet to return to His temple.
