Treasury of Scripture

He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

Luke 1:70-75
As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: …

Psalm 98:3

Isaiah 44:21

(54) He hath holpen his servant Israel.--Up to this point the hymn has been one of personal thanks-giving. Now we find that all the soul of the maiden of Nazareth is with her people. Her joy in the "great things "which God has done for her rests on the fact that they are "great things "for Israel also. The word which she uses for her people is that which expresses their relation to God as "the servant" of Jehovah, who is prominent in the later chapters of Isaiah, and is in Isaiah 41:8 identified with the nation, as elsewhere with the nation's Head (Isaiah 42:1). One may see in the utterance of this hope already seen as realised, an indication of the early date of the hymn. At the time when St. Luke wrote, the rejection, not the restoration of Israel, was the dominant thought in men's minds.

In remembrance.--Literally, in order to remember. He helped Israel, as with the purpose to prove Himself not unmindful of His promised mercy.

Verses 54, 55. - He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; as he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. Her hymn dies down into a strain of gratitude for the eternal faithfulness to the cause of the chosen people. Had not God in very truth remembered his ancient promise? From one of their daughters, still speaking of the future as of the past, Messiah had been born - a greater Deliverer, too, than the most sanguine Hebrew patriot had ever dreamed of.
