Isaiah 40:1-26

 

In the beginning of Isaiah chapter 40, it is proclaimed from the prophet Isaiah that the land has received double for their sins and their punishment is over. It is a word from the prophet telling the inhabitants that the hand of LORD had made the land receive double and that the land’s service was now over. There is exclamation of the end process of beholding G-d through all the works that were finished. The most interesting part of Isaiah chapter 40 is the verse that proclaims to behold G-d. Isaiah 40 verse 10 states הִנֵּ֨ה אֲדֹנָ֤י יְהוִה֙ בְּחָזָ֣ק יָב֔וֹא וּזְרֹע֖וֹ מֹ֣שְׁלָה ל֑וֹ הִנֵּ֤ה שְׂכָרוֹ֙ אִתּ֔וֹ וּפְעֻלָּת֖וֹ לְפָנָֽיו׃ Behold, the Lord GOD comes in might, And His arm wins triumph for Him; See, His reward is with Him, His recompense before Him. According to that verse, God finally showed up in the land and all the reward and amends was most likely about or by being with the LORD and partaking in the fruit of the land. Finally, G-d had again established the new world. Accordingly, the triumph of G-d was for the LORD most likely. A few questions are posed from the prophet Isaiah. The questions had to do with how did G-d do it – how did he gain knowledge and find the path of wisdom. G-d was knowledgeable in the LORD. Isaiah states about the teaching of G-d. Then Isaiah states in the chapter that the idol that will not topple is the gift to portray that G-d was G-d from the beginning of creation. G-d established the heavens and the earth. Potentates and rulers are made to be as little because of G-d is what Isaiah states, and because of G-d, people might bear off like straw by the storm of G-d. Then the Holy One asks וְאֶל־מִ֥י תְדַמְּי֖וּנִי וְאֶשְׁוֶ֑ה יֹאמַ֖ר קָדֽוֹשׁ׃ To whom, then, can you liken Me, To whom can I be compared? —says the Holy One (Isaiah 40:25).
