Chapter 52

{Chapter 51 and 52 Are Great Messianic Passages
  Subject - Encouragement to the People of God}
{Verses 1-12: Encouragement by the Regathering of Israel}
1``Wake up! Wake up! {`uwr `uwr - Qal imperative - an order}

Put on your strength, O Zion.

Put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city.

For henceforth there shall no more come into you
the uncircumcised and the unclean.

2 Shake yourself from the dust.

Arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem.

Loose yourself from the bands of your neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.

3`` For thus said Jehovah/God,
"You have sold yourselves for nothing;
and you shall be redeemed without money.

4``For thus said the 'Adonay/Lord . . . Jehovah/God,
My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there;
and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.

5``Now therefore, what have I here," said the Jehovah/God,
"that my people is taken away for nothing?"

"They who rule over them make them to howl," said Jehovah/God,
"and My name continually every day is blasphemed."

{Verses 6-7: The Principal of the Missionary}
6~~Therefore My people
  {Jews at the 2nd Advent}
shall know My name.

Therefore they shall know in that day
  {verbiage to bring in the 2nd Advent}
that I {Jesus Christ} am the One Who is speaking.

Behold, here I am.

{Note: Many Jews accept the Alpha Glory of God, but reject the Omega Glory of Jesus Christ in Hypostatic Union. They do not believe Jesus was the Messiah and are therefore like a woman in birth pangs who never gives birth (they reject the baby). We find in Revelation that in the Tribulation, the birth pangs will be even worse than in the holocaust and their persecutions throughout the Church Age.}

{Beautiful Missionary Passage}
7~~How the feet {means of transportation}
of him who announces 'the good news'/
'news of the good of intrinsic value' {basar}
  {a picture of the missionary moving out to spread the Word
    in Greek that is equivalent to 'gospel' - it is the good news that
  the Messiah has come - and salvation is now perfected}
have become beautiful/'beautifully timely'
  {na'ah - Pilpel perfect means something previously not beautiful
    becomes beautiful the missionary moving out is a beautiful sight -
  the feet represent positive volition of the missionary regardless of
  the lack of positivism of the listeners}
on the mountains
  {represents missionary overcoming all obstacles} . . .
who causes others to hear the message of reconciliation
  {between man to God - shama` shalowm - Hiphil causative stem -
  this means to teach in a manner in which people will listen - in this
  case the doctrine of peace/reconciliation}
who announced the 'good news' about the 'coming good'
  {doctrine about the 2nd Advent of Christ and Millennium} . . .
who caused others to hear the message of deliverance
  {for Israel} {y@shuw`ah}
who say unto Zion
  {used for the Jewish nation},
'Your 'Elohiym /Godhead certainly will rule/reign'
  {prophetic perfect - in future but is so certain it is put in perfect

{Note: Paul quotes from this verse in Romans 10:15. The resurrection is an essential doctrine in the evangelism of the Jew today.}

8`` Your watchmen shall lift up their voice;
with the voice together shall they sing.
For they shall see eye to eye,
when Jehovah/God shall bring again Zion.

9``Break forth into joy, sing together,
you waste places of Jerusalem.
For Jehovah/God has comforted his people,
he has redeemed Jerusalem.

  {God the Father this time}
has revealed {chasaph} His Holy Arm
  {His Holy Arm is a Title for Jesus Christ}
in the eyes of all the gentiles/nations.

And all the ends of the earth shall see
the deliverance/salvation of our 'Elohiym/Godhead.

{Note In Psalm 19:1 Creation is called finger work. Jesus used a 'finger' to create the universe. To go to the cross and be in Hypostatic Union forever was HARDER - that is called 'arm work'. Arm refers to His Humanity and Holy or sometimes the Lord refers to His deity.}

11`` Depart you, depart you,
go you out from thence,
touch no unclean thing;
go you out of the midst of her;
be you clean,
who bear the vessels of Jehovah/God.

12`` For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight.
For the Jehovah/God will go before you
and the 'Elohiym/Godhead of Israel will be your rear ward.

{Verses 13 -15: Encouragement
  By Occupation with the Person of Jesus Christ}
13~~Behold, My Servant will be caused to prosper
  {Jesus Christ - in His humiliation taking the form of a man}.

He will rise up
  {ruwm - referring to His Resurrection}.

And He will be lifted up
  {nasa' - here referring to the doctrine of His Ascension -
   (the change of residence of Jesus Christ from earth to the Third
  Heaven now in His Resurrection Body)}.

And He shall be exalted to the maximum
  {His complete and total Glorification in His Resurrection body}.

{Verses 14-15: His Beaten Body Compared to His Resurrection Body}
14-15~~Just as many {Jews}
were shocked/astonished/amazed
  { shamem - to be shocked from horror of how BAD He looked}
at You . . .
  {at how He took the punishment without a whimper throughout
   the beatings, torture, and hanging on the cross - no crying out
  - until imputed with the sins of the world - shamem perfect
  future tense}
so disfigured . . . more than any man . . . His appearance
  {appearance of Jesus after His torture before and on the cross}
and His 'outer appearance'/form more
  {beaten to a pulp - terrible appearance}

than 'any other man' {ben 'adam}
  {idiom: literally: 'the sons of man}; 15~~
so shall He cause the startling
  {nazah - this time a new word for startling is used to
  represent this startling is from how beautiful He will look}
of many gentiles/nations
  {Jesus Christ at His 2nd Advent in His beautiful Resurrection body
  is 'more than that of other men' as an analogy to how bad His
  beaten body had looked on the cross}.

The kings shall 'be speechless'/'shut their mouths' before Him
  {qaphats - so shocked they can not speak}.

For that which {the 2nd Advent}
had not been communicated/
'told in a high level briefing' {caphar}
to them,
they will see.

And that which they had not 'heard, listened to, and obeyed'
  {shama' - means to listen and concentrate on bible doctrine - they
  chose not to}
shall they discern for themselves
  {biyn - under the empirical perception of the 2nd advent}.

{Note: Paul quoted from this verse in Romans 15:21. This verse tells us that throughout the Church Age and the Tribulation, there will always be unbelievers. These unbelievers are astounded with the coming of Christ so they are speechless.}
