“Fragile Heart,” Yolanda Adams

“THE YEAR OF THE LORD’S FAVOR,” III, Isaiah 61:10) I Will Greatly Rejoice In THE LORD, My Soul Shall Be Joyful In My GOD; For HE Hath Clothed Me With The Garments Of SALVATION, HE Hath Covered Me With The Robe Of RIGHTEOUSNESS, As a Bridegroom Decketh (Covers) Himself With Ornaments, And As A Bride Adorneth Herself With Her Jewels.  Revelation 21:2.  11) For As The Earth Bringeth Forth Her Bud, And As The Garden Causeth The Things That Are Sown In It To Spring Forth, SO THE LORD GOD WILL CAUSE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PRAISE TO SPRING FORTH BEFORE ALL THE NATIONS.

 Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary – v10, I and the parallel My soul refer to personified (a quality or concept) Zion.  Rejoice is translated “Joy” in Verse 3 (see also 65:18).  Clothed signifies the Servant’s new Glorified Status or Condition (47:2; 52:1; 59:17).  v11, Spring Forth:  This Phrase is also found in 42:9; 43:19; 46:8 To Describe The Coming Of GOD’S SALVATION.  RIGHTEOUSNESS Here Means “DELIVERANCE” (54:17).  

Quest Study Bible – v10, “How did bridegrooms dress like Priests?”  A bridegroom in Isaiah’s day wore a turban or crown of some sort (Song of Solomon 3:11).  Priests also wore turbans (Exodus 28:4).

Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v10-11, Those Only Shall Be Clothed With The Garments Of SALVATION Hereafter, That Are Covered With THE ROBE OF CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS Now, And BY THE SANCTIFICATION OF THE SPIRIT HAVE GOD’S IMAGE RENEWED UPON THEM.  These Blessings Shall Spring Forth For Ages To Come, Like The Fruits Of The Earth.  So Duly, So Constantly, And With Such Advantage To Mankind, WILL THE LORD GOD CAUSE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PRAISE TO SPRING FORTH.  THEY Shall Spread Far; THE GREAT SALVATION SHALL BE PUBLISHED (MADE KNOWN) AND PROCLAIMED, To The Ends Of The Earth.  Let Us Be Earnest In Prayer, THAT THE LORD GOD MAY CAUSE THAT RIGHTEOUSNESS TO SPRING FORTH AMONG US, Which Constitutes The Excellence And Glory Of The Christian Profession.  Amen.
