Verse of the Day (July 5, 2020)

Verse of tthe Day (July 5, 2020) #BMSeminary – Happy Lord’s Day! {vv. 1-6} This chapter is a song of triumphant praise and serves as a dramatic climax and doxology to the Immanuel prophecy (7:1–12:6). I will praise thee is an imperfect verb expressing continual action. Behold, God is my salvation literally means, “My salvation is God Himself!” The LORD JEHOVAH is our strength, song, and salvation. The expression is similar to the song of deliverance sung by the people of Israel when they crossed the Red Sea (Ex. 15:12). John 4:14 is reminiscent of the water out of the wells of salvation. Excellent things are majestic things. These great things are to be preached to the whole world and sung and shouted aloud, for great is the Holy One of Israel. With beautiful imagery, Isaiah closes this section of prophecy with a triumphal doxology of praise. [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
