“The Blood Will Never Lose It’s Power”
“What A Friend We Have In Jesus”
“Woe To David’s City,” lll, Isaiah 29:17) Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest? 18) And In That Day shall the deaf hear The Words Of The Book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. 19) The meek also shall Increase Their Joy In The Lord, and the poor among men shall Rejoice In The Holy One of Israel. John 15;11; James 2:5. 20) For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: 21) That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the Just for a thing of nought. Proverbs 28:21. 22) Therefore Thus Saith The Lord, Who Redeemed Abraham, Concerning the House of Jacob, Jacob Shall Not Now Be Ashamed, Neither Shall His Face Now Wax Pale. Joshua 24:3. 23) But when he seeth his children, The Work Of Mine Hands, in the midst of him, They Shall Sanctify My Name, And Sanctify The Holy One of Jacob, And Shall Fear The God Of Israel. Ephesians 2:10. 24) They also that erred in Spirit shall come to Understanding, and they that murmured shall learn Doctrine. Isaiah 28:7.

Lay a snare may include the miscarriage of Justice through legal technicalities. By empty words refers to winning a case through lies or clever arguments. v22, Jacob shall not now be ashamed: Based on God’s Covenant with the Patriarchs, The Lord Gave A Renewed Promise of Deliverance And Blessing To The Israelites. v23, 24, My Hands: God Himself Will Bring About The Redemption Of His People. Holy One Of Jacob refers to The One Whom Jacob Regarded As Holy.
Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v17-24, The Wonderful Change Here Foretold, may refer to the affairs of Judah, though it looks further. When a Great Harvest of Souls Was Gathered To Christ From Among The Gentiles, then the wilderness was turned into a Fruitful Field; And The Jewish Church, that had long been a Fruitful Field, became as a Deserted Forest. Those who, when in trouble, can Truly Rejoice In God shall soon have cause Greatly To Rejoice In Him. The Grace of Meekness Contributes to the Increase Of Our Holy Joy. The enemies who were powerful shall become mean and weak. To complete the repose (state of rest) of God’s people, the scorners at home shall be cut off by Judgements. All are apt to speak unadvisedly, and to mistake what they hear, but it is very unfair to a make a man an offender for a word. They did all they could to bring those into trouble who told them of their faults. But He That Redeemed Abraham Out Of All His Snares and Troubles, Will Redeem Those Who Are, By Faith, His True Seed, Out of Theirs (Troubles). It will be the Greatest Comfort to godly parents to see their children Renewed Creatures, The Work Of God’s Grace. May Those Who Now Err In Spirit, And Murmur Against The Truth, Come To Understanding, And Learn True Doctrine. The Spirit Of Truth Shall Set Right Their Mistakes, And Lead Them Into All Truth. This Should Encourage Us To Pray For Those That Have Erred, And Are Deceived. All who murmured at The Truths Of God, As Hard Sayings, shall learn and be aware What God Designed In All.
