Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 66:1


66:1 The heaven - The highest heaven, is the place where I shew myself in my majesty. So #Psal 11:4 Psal 103:19 Matt 5:34|. Hence we are taught to pray; our father which art in heaven. And the earth is my footstool - Or a place wherein I set my feet, #Matt 5:35|. The house - Can there be an house built, that will contain me? My rest - Or where is the place wherein I can be said to rest in a proper sense?
