Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.CHAPTER 51
Jehovah Encourages His Faithful People, the Remnant of Israel
1. The call to remember Abraham (Isaiah 51:1-2) 2. Zion to be comforted (Isaiah 51:3) 3. His righteousness near and His arm to judge the people (Isaiah 51:4-6) 4. Fear ye not (Isaiah 51:7-8) 5. The prayer of faith (Isaiah 51:9-11) 6. Jehovah answers (Isaiah 51:12-16) 7. The suffering of the nation to end (Isaiah 51:17-23)The Lord speaks to His faithful people. He reminds them of Abraham and the covenant. He assures them that the wilderness of Zion shall become like Eden, like the garden of the Lord. Judgment shall overtake the earth. It is beautiful to see how the faithful pray in faith after this message from Jehovah (Isaiah 51:9-11), and how Jehovah answers them (Isaiah 51:12-16).
