Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 62:6


62:6 Day nor night - There shall be a vigilant and industrious ministry. Ye - That is, are his servants. And here especially are meant his servants in ordinary, his remembrancers, such as put God in mind of his promise, and such as make the Lord to be remembered, putting his people in mind of him.


Discussion for Isaiah 62

  • Sr
    This scripture is about God 's lost sheep being redeemed from captivity (Deuteronomy 28:68) and how he will make them known amongst the Gentiles nations once again. Refer to Jeremiah 33:23-26 to see how his Holy people were despised and not recognized as being his people in today's world.

    Isa. 62; I may be wrong about this; I know it's prophecy; v. 1 mentions the Gentiles, v.2 says 'they' (Jews) shall be called by a new name (Jesus, Lk. 1:31); later the Gentiles will be br'ot in - 'married' to the sons (Jews) in His salvation. This makes sense to me, but I may be wa-a-y off ..... ?.
  • Irene123
    To Nicola on v. 6 - also it's a verse for us to witness of Him, His truth, at every opportunity. And HIS truth is - Acts 2:38.
