“Sin, Confession and Redemption,” IV, Isaiah 59:20) AND THE REDEEMER Shall Come To Zion, And Unto Them That Turn From Transgression (Sin) In Jacob, SAITH THE LORD.  21) AS FOR ME, THIS IS MY COVENANT WITH THEM, SAITH THE LORD; MY SPIRIT THAT IS UPON THEE, AND MY WORDS WHICH I HAVE PUT IN THY MOUTH, SHALL NOT DEPART OUT OF THY MOUTH, NOR OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THY SEED, NOR OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THY SEED’S SEED, SAITH THE LORD, FROM HENCEFORTH AND FOR EVER.  Hebrews 8:10.  Amen.

Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary – v20, THE REDEEMER WILL COME  IN THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST.  turn from transgression (sin):  For similar appeals to turn from sin in the Prophecies of Isaiah see 1:17-19; 30:15; 31:6; 59:9-15.  v21, Them  refers to the Repentant (v. 20).  MY SPIRIT:  For Similar References see 11:2; 30:1; 42:1; 48:16; 61;1.  You and your in this verse are singular, probably with reference to Isaiah.  GOD’S SPIRIT AND WORDS WOULD BE GIVEN TO ISRAEL (44:3).

Quest Study Bible – v21, “How Could GOD PROMISE That Their Descendants Would Never Reject HIS SPIRIT OR HIS WORD?”  HE DIDN’T.  HE SIMPLY PROMISED THAT HE WOULD NEVER WITHDRAW HIS SPIRIT FROM HIS PEOPLE.  THIS WAS GOD’S SIDE OF THE COVENANT.  But the other side of the deal, on the part of the people, included their own commitment to the Relationship.  As long as they remained Faithful To THE LORD, HE WOULD REMAIN WITH THEM.  HIS PROMISE WAS TO THOSE WHO REPENT OF THEIR SINS (v. 20).  Many also see this a Prophecy Of The New Covenant.  GOD GAVE HIS SPIRIT PERMANENTLY TO THE CHURCH OF CHRIST AT PENTECOST (Acts 2:1-4).  Amen.

Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – 16-21, This Passage Is Connected With The Following Chapters.  It Is Generally Thought To Describe THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH, AS THE AVENGER AND DELIVERER OF HIS CHURCH.  There was none to Intercede With GOD To Tun Away HIS WRATH; None To Interpose (Involve Oneself) For The Support Of JUSTICE And TRUTH.  YET HE ENGAGED HIS OWN STRENGTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS PEOPLE.  GOD WILL MAKE HIS JUSTICE UPON THE ENEMIES OF HIS CHURCH AND PEOPLE PLAINLY APPEAR.  When the enemy threatens to bear down all without control, then THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD Shall Stop him, (and) put him to flight.  HE THAT HAD DELIVERED, WILL STILL DELIVER.  A far more GLORIOUS SALVATION Is Promised To Be Wrought Out (Brought About) By THE MESSIAH In The Fullness Of Time, Which All The Prophets Had In View.  THE SON OF GOD SHALL COME TO US TO BE OUR REDEEMER; THE SPIRIT OF GOD SHALL COME TO BE OUR SANCTIFIER:  THUS THE COMFORTER SHALL ABIDE WITH THE CHURCH FOR EVER, John 14:16.  THE WORD OF CHRIST WILL ALWAYS CONTINUE IN THE MOUTHS OF THE FAITHFUL, and whatever is pretended to be the Mind Of THE SPIRIT, Must Be Tried By The SCRIPTURES.  We must lament the progress of infidelity and impiety.  But The Cause of THE REDEEMER Shall Gain a Complete Victory Even On Earth, And The Believer Will Be More Than (A) CONQUEROR When THE LORD Receives him TO HIS (THE LORD’S) GLORY IN HEAVEN.  Amen.
