Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures
Isaiah 30

 

 

Verses 1-33

Isaiah 30:4 For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to Hanes.

Isaiah 30:4"For his princes were at Zoan" - Comments- Zoan seems to be a city where their wise men gathered to make decisions ( Isaiah 19:11-13).

Isaiah 19:11-13, "Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings? Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell thee now, and let them know what the LORD of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt. The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof."

Isaiah 30:4 — "and his ambassadors came to Hanes" - Comments- The name "Hanes" Hebrew ( חָנֵס) (H 2609) is used once in Old Testament.

Isaiah 30:8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:

Isaiah 30:8Comments- The New Testament says that the story of Israel was written for our benefit, in order to learn a lesson from it ( 1 Corinthians 10:6; 1 Corinthians 10:11).

1 Corinthians 10:6, "Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted."

1 Corinthians 10:11, "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."

Isaiah 30:15 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.

Isaiah 30:15Illustration- Just before coming to the Lord, I was a restless person. Having just graduated from college, and not having a Job , I was financially broke and running from God; therefore, I "returned" home to the Lord and spent a week reading in the book of Romans "rest" ( Matthew 11:28-30) and was saved. Now for "strength," I go to God in "quietness" and listen to words of life ( Isaiah 40:31).

Isaiah 40:31, "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Matthew 11:28-30, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
