Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 53:6


53:6 We - All mankind. Astray - From God. Have turned - In general, to the way of sin, which may well be called a man's own way, because sin is natural to us, inherent in us, born with us; and in particular, to those several paths, which several men chuse, according to their different opinions, and circumstances. Hath laid - Heb. hath made to meet, as all the rivers meet in the sea. The iniquity - Not properly, for he knew no sin; but the punishment of iniquity, as that word is frequently used. That which was due for all the sins of all mankind, which must needs be so heavy a load, that if he had not been God as well as man, he must have sunk under the burden.

  • Having received the greatest gift, that caused a break in the union of the Father, and His ONLY begotten Son while he paid my price for sin. I must acknowledge Him in all my ways and live as one once dead in sin but now resurrected seated at the right hand of God setting aside anything that would separate me from Him.
