Verse of the Day (September 3, 2020)

Verse of the Day (September 3, 2020) #BMSeminary – {the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel} This is a recurrent title in this section of Isaiah (cf. Isa 41:14; Isa 43:14; Isa 49:7; Isa 49:26; Isa 54:5; Isa 54:8). It is expressed in a slightly different but parallel way in Isa 49:26, “I the LORD, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” {who teaches you to profit} This is “profit” (BDB 418 I, Hiphil INFINITIVE CONSTRUCT) in the sense of advantage (cf. Job 21:15; Job 35:3; Jer 12:13; Isa 47:12). Often it is used of what idols cannot do for the worshiper (cf. Isa 44:9-10; Isa 57:12; 1Sa 12:21; Jer 2:8; Jer 7:8; Jer 7:11; Jer 23:32; Hab 2:18). {Who leads you in the way you should go} This is the Semitic idiom of the righteous life as a “good path” (cf. Psa 32:8; Psa 119:105). Here it probably refers to YHWH’s presence and provision on the way home from exile (cf. Isa 48:20; Isa 49:9-10). [You Can Understand the Bible by Dr. Bob Utley]
