Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 30:6


30:6 The burden - The treasures, which were carried upon asses or camels, into Egypt, which lay southward from Judea. The land of trouble - Egypt, so called prophetically. From whence - This may be understood properly, but withal, seems to design the craft and cruelty of that people. They - The Jews. Their riches - To procure their assistance. Bunches - Upon the backs.

    Thank you for producing this commentary. I found it to be just wonderful andd quite helpful. I am a reader of the word and it speaks to me, but sometimes we need to hear whatother believers have to say, too. Thanks!

    THE WAY OF GOD IS ALWAYS HOLY AND TRUE! TO SAY WE DO THE WILL OF GOD SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, 24 HRS A DAY WOULD BE A LIE! JESUS WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS LIVED ON THIS EARTH AND KEPT THE WHOLE LAW PERFECTLY! SO THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE JUSTICE IN OUR LIFE IS ONLY THROUGH THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD! WHEN WE REALLY RECIEVE THE GRACE OF GOD IN OUR LIVES, THEN CHANGE IN OUR LIVES WILL HAPPEN! CHANGE WILL NOT HAPPEN JUST BECAUSE WE WANT TOO, BUT CHANGE COMES WHEN WE DEPEND ON THE GRACE OF GOD! JOHN 15:5 SAYS "WITHOUT HIM WE CANNOT DO NOTHING "! THE ONLY WAY TO LIVE A FRUITFUL LIFE IS TO STAY ON THE VINE JESUS ! LORD I PRAY IN OUR LIVES WE LEARN TO WAIT ON U AND TRUST U FOR WHAT IS GOING ON IN OUR LIVES! LORD THANK U FOR LOVING US EVEN WHEN WE WERE NOT LOVING U! AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD!!!
