(10) That obeyeth the voice of his servant.--The question may be asked of any servant of Jehovah, such as was Isaiah himself, but receives its highest application in the Servant who has appeared as speaking in the preceding verses.

That walketh in darkness.--The words grow at once out of the prophet's own experience and that of the ideal Servant. All true servants know what it is to feel as if the light for which they looked had for a time failed them, to utter a prayer like that of Ajax, "Give light, and let us die" (Hom. Il. xvii. 647). The Servant felt it when he uttered the cry, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46). For such an one there were the words of counsel, "Trust, in spite of the darkness." So the cry of the forsaken Servant was followed by the word "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit" (Luke 23:46).

Verses 10, 11. - AN ADDRESS OF JEHOVAH TO HIS CHURCH. Some suppose that the Church of Hezekiah's reign is addressed; others the exiles towards the close of the Captivity period. The first verse is an exhortation, encouraging those who fear God, but have insufficient light, to trust in him. The second threatens such as "kindle fire," or cause strife, with retribution. Verse 10. - That obeyeth the voice of his servant; that is, of "his servant" for the time being, whether Isaiah, or Jeremiah, or "the Servant" κατ ἐξοχήν That walketh in darkness. Not clearly seeing his way or knowing what his duty is, and so inclined to despond and doubt. Every such person is bidden to put aside his doubts, and trust wholly in the Name of the Lord, and stay upon his God. Hence light will shine in upon him, and his doubts will be resolved, and sufficient light will be granted him to direct his paths.
