Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 56:1


56:1 My salvation - That eminent salvation by the Messiah, and in which, without this you shall have no share. Is near - So the scripture often speaks of things which are at a great distance, as if they were present or at hand, #Hab 2:3 James 5:8|,9 Rev 22:20. My righteousness - The same thing which he called salvation.
