Treasury of Scripture

Thus said God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which comes out of it; he that gives breath to the people on it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

he that created

Isaiah 40:12,22,28
Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? …

Isaiah 44:24

Isaiah 45:12,18
I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded…

he that spread

Genesis 1:10-12,24,25
And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good…

Psalm 24:1,2
A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein…

Psalm 136:6

he that giveth

Job 12:10
In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

Job 27:3
All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;









(5) He that created.--The accumulation of Divine attributes, as enhancing the solemnity of a revelation, has an earlier parallel in Amos 5:8; a later one in Zechariah 12:1.

Verse 5. - Thus saith God the Lord; literally, thus saith the (One) God, Jehovah. The entire utterance, vers. 1-4, is the utterance of God; but, as that fact is gathered by inference, not asserted, the prophet suddenly stops, and makes a new beginning. It must be made perfectly clear that the announcement of the "Servant of the Lord" and his mission are from the Almighty; and so we have the solemn announcement of the present verse. He that created the heavens, etc. (comp. Isaiah 40:12, 22). The earth, and that which cometh out of it; i.e. all that the earth produces - gold, and silver, and precious stones, and corn, and wine, and luscious fruits, and lovely flowers - all that sustains life, and all that makes life delightful - nay more, life itself - the breath and the spirit that make men living beings.
