Scofield's Reference Notes

Isaiah 9

Verse 3

not Omit, not. Isaiah complains that despite the wickedness of the northern kingdom her afflictions are light, her prosperity great.

Verse 7

throne of David

The "throne of David" is a phrase as definite, historic, historically, as "throne of the Caesars," and as little admits of "spiritualizing." Luke 1:32; Luke 1:33. See "Kingdom (O.T.). (See Scofield "Luke 1:33- :") . "Davidic Covenant," See Scofield "Luke 1:33- :", Acts 15:14-44.15.16.

Verse 8

Jacob (See Scofield " :-") .

Verse 12

For all this his anger

See Isaiah 9:17; Isaiah 9:21; Isaiah 5:25; Isaiah 10:4

The context explains. Jehovah's hand is outstretched still because His chastisement is followed by no amendment on the part of Israel.
