(9) This is the word of promise.--Rather, this saying is of promise. The children of promise, I say, for the saying, "At this time will I come," &c., is a matter of promise; it implied a divine and miraculous intervention, and did not come in the ordinary course of nature.

At this time--i.e., at the corresponding time of the next year.
