Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures
Isaiah 16

 

 

Verses 1-14

Isaiah 16:2 For it shall be, that, as a wandering bird cast out of the nest, so the daughters of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon.

Isaiah 16:2"as a wandering bird cast out of the nest" - Comments- When an immature baby bird is cast out of the nest, it has no where to go to find safety or food. Its life is now hopeless.

Illustration - I have seen a baby dove fell out of a nest and waited for its mother all day long by instinct. She was the baby bird's only hope of survival.

Isaiah 16:5 And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.

Isaiah 16:5 "he shall sit upon it" - Comments- Does this refer to "the lamb" in verse one?
