This page covers Psalms to Isaiah chapter eleven.

Psalm 2 & 48 Commentary:
Against Jehovah's anointed refers to the Messiah, the Christ, which is what anointed means. Indeed, Christ is King in Zion; his inheritance is the entire earth and all the people shall serve him.

Psalm 2:1-9 Why do the nations (1) rage, And the peoples meditate a vain thing?(1. Or tumultuously assemble) 2The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against Jehovah, and against his anointed, saying , 3Let us break their bonds asunder, And cast away their cords from us. 4He that sitteth in the heavens will laugh: The Lord will have them in derision. 5Then will he speak unto them in his wrath, And (1) vex them in his sore displeasure:(1) Or trouble ) 6Yet I have set my king Upon my holy hill of Zion. 7I will tell of the decree: Jehovah said unto me, Thou art my son; This day have I begotten thee. 8Ask of me, and I will give thee the nations for thine inheritance, And the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. (ASV)

Psalms 48 and 76 are similar in subject but though the Saints are mentioned, Christ isn't. An interesting passage is found here in Psalm 76:10 (ASV) "Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: The residue of wrath shalt thou (1) gird upon thee.(1) Or restrain )" It refers to the rage of the nations in Psalms two and to the answering wrath of God in 2:5.

Psalm 22 Commentary:
A difficult passage with lots of information: patient wronged-ones, the meek or humble in different translations; this refers to the faithful of God. The whole earth will be God's kingship. The "one to rule over the nations" could because of verse 30's mention of "My seed" refer to Christ Jesus. "Even he who had not kept alive, his own soul" then refers to the resurrection of the dead.

Psalm 22:26-31 The patient wronged-ones shall eat and be satisfied, They shall praise Yahweh, who are seekers of him, Let your heart live for aye. 27All the ends of the earth, will remember and turn to Yahweh, Yea all the families of the nations, will bow themselves down before thee, 28For, to Yahweh, belongeth the kingdom, And One to Rule over the nations. 29All the great ones of the earth, shall eat and bow down, Before him shall kneel, all that go down to the dust, Even he who had not kept alive, his own soul! 30My seed, shall serve him, It shall he recounted, of the Lord, to a generation that shall come: 31That his righteousness may be declared to a people to be born, That he wrought with effect! (Rotherham)

Psalm 149
This Psalm demonstrates that Armageddon shall be fought by among others, the Saints. Though not entirely clear from this context, due to other scriptural sources, it may be permissible to say that the King they are joyful in is Christ -- even though, God remains the ultimate King of all the universe.

149:1 (1) Praise ye Jehovah. Sing unto Jehovah a new song, And his praise in the assembly of the saints.(1) Heb Hallelujah ) 2Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3Let them praise his name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp. 4For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people: He will beautify the meek with (1) salvation.(1) Or victory ) 5Let the saints exult in glory: Let them sing for joy upon their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their (1) mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand;(1) Heb throat ) 7To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; 8To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9To execute upon them the judgment written: (1) This honor have all his saints. (2) Praise ye Jehovah.(1) Or He is the honor of all his saints 2) Heb Hallelujah ) (ASV)

Isaiah 2 Commentary:
This chapter deals with the global ingathering of the faithful in the last days. From Zion law goes forth. The faithful ingathered renounce the practice of war, and with Armageddon during which the ungodly shall perish. That God's majesty is mentioned brings this into the context of God's kingdom. In verse 18 the false gods will be no more.

Isaiah chapter 2, excerpts only:
4And he will judge (1) between the nations, and will decide concerning many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. (1) Or among )
20In that day men shall cast away their idols of silver, and their idols of gold, which have been made for them to worship, to the moles and to the bats; 21to go into the caverns of the rocks, and into the clefts of the ragged rocks, from before the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake mightily the earth. 22Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils; for wherein is he to be accounted of?

Isaiah 9 Commentary:
Known by most Bible students, the scripture shows that one point of Christ's government is that he sits on his forefather David's throne, an earthly kingdom. This point is underscored by what is said about Christ upholding judgment and righteousness since only the earth, not the heavens, need this to be introduced.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name is called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty *God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace. 7Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with judgment and with righteousness, from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of Jehovah of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 10 & 11 Commentary:
Chapter ten and eleven both concern themselves with the events pertaining to the kingdom. In 10:12,13, we see that once all the Saints have been collected and finally sealed that it is time for God to remove the earth's boundaries - Armageddon. 24-34 deals with this end. These prophecies that were fulfilled once before will have a final application in Armageddon. In chapter 11:1-12, Christ's reign and its accomplishments are clearly explained. The prophecy "come forth a shoot" refers to Jesus living and coming out of Nazareth.

It is obvious from this prophecy that Christ's Kingdom reign shall be on earth. Equally obvious is the effects of this reign in regard to poverty and peace.

Isaiah 11:1-9 And there shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall be fruitful; 2and the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah. 3And his delight will be in the fear of Jehovah; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears; 4but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 5And righteousness shall be the girdle of his reins, and faithfulness the girdle of his loins. 6The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatted beast together, and a little child shall lead them. 7And the cow and the she-bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the adder, and the weaned child shall put forth its hand to the viper's den. 9They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Jehovah, as the waters cover the sea. (Darby)

Isaiah 14 Commentary:
Of all the points in this chapter, the ones quoted here are, that Jehovah shall have mercy on Israel, spiritual Israel, that these shall inherit their own land - the heavens, that they shall possess the nations. All of the above agrees with the remainder of the Bible's prophecies regarding the Saints, the Born Again, the Elect. From verse five, it again is evident that this kingdom brings paradise to the whole earth.

Isaiah 14:1-2 For Jehovah will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in rest in their own land; and the stranger shall be united to them, and they shall be joined to the house of Jacob. 2And the peoples shall take them and bring them to their place; and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of Jehovah for servants and handmaids; and they shall take them captive whose captives they were, and they shall rule over their oppressors. 3And it shall come to pass in the day that Jehovah shall give thee rest from thy sorrow and from thy trouble and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, . . . 5Jehovah hath broken the staff of the wicked, the sceptre of the rulers. 6He that smote the peoples in wrath with a relentless stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted unsparingly. 7The whole earth is at rest, is quiet: they break forth into singing.

Isaiah 24 Commentary:
This is where Jesus' prophecy about the sun and moon on the last day came from -- if there are other parallel ones I haven't checked. Again, Armageddon is shown to empty the land of most people before the reign of Jehovah commences. The ancients in glory could refer to the angels, or perhaps metaphorically speaking to the Saints, since they may be viewed as elders in the congregation once they are resurrected.

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, Jehovah maketh the land empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad its inhabitants. 2And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with him from whom usury is taken. 3The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled; for Jehovah hath spoken this word. 4The land mourneth, it fadeth away; the world languisheth, it fadeth away: the haughty people of the land do languish. 5And the land is polluted under the inhabitants thereof; for they have violated the laws, changed the statute, broken the everlasting covenant. 6Therefore doth the curse devour the earth, and they that dwell therein are held guilty; therefore the inhabitants of the earth are consumed, and few men are left . . .

16From the end of the earth have we heard songs: Glory to the righteous! And I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! The treacherous have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous have dealt very treacherously. 17Fear, and the pit, and the snare are upon thee, inhabitant of the land. 18And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the sound of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare; for the windows on high are open, and the foundations of the earth shake. 19The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is completely dissolved, the earth is violently moved. 20The earth reeleth to and fro like a drunkard, and is shaken like a night hut; and its transgression is heavy upon it; and it falleth and shall not rise again. 21And it shall come to pass in that day, that Jehovah will punish the host of the high ones on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. 22And they shall be brought together, as an assemblage of prisoners for the pit, and shall be shut up in prison, and after many days shall they be visited. 23And the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed; for Jehovah of hosts shall reign on mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients in glory. (Darby)

Isaiah 25-27 Commentary:
The text in chapters 25-27 seems very interrelated. Several important subjects, Satan's destruction in 27:1, the fact that Satan swims in the sea of the wicked of  mankind, compare Revelation's 21:3,4 with the parallel scripture here at 25:8, the resurrection in 26:19, the intense prayer of the afflicted Saints. Much could be expounded upon even more than the comments below; however, reading the text by itself permits personal meditation.

25: "This mountain" is mount Zion. The fat things may first of all refer to spiritual truths but shall also include the material goods people need to be happy. The veil that covers all the peoples today is the veil of oppressive churches and governments including economic and political systems that permit the very rich to oppress the masses. The part about "swallow up death in victory" and "wipe away tears" should immediately remind you of a near exact phrasing in Revelation 21:3,4. From this teaching it becomes obvious once again that those that teach that death is a gateway to a spiritual life with God are opposed to the teachings of the Inspired Word, the Bible.

The two chapters seem connected. The righteous nation entering in to Zion is the nation of Saints, the firstborn of spiritual Israel. Their oppressors have been killed and the nation has been made to include the entire earth. In 16 the Saints are seen to pour out a whisper of continual prayer when they were in trouble. In 19 the resurrection is assured and in 20 we see the denunciation, Armageddon that washes clean the earth.

Isaiah 25:6-8 And in this mountain will Jehovah of hosts make unto all peoples a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the veil which veileth all the peoples, and the covering that is spread over all the nations. 8He will swallow up death in victory. And the Lord Jehovah will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the reproach of his people will he take away from off all the earth: for Jehovah hath spoken. (Darby)

26:1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; salvation doth he appoint for walls and bulwarks. 2Open ye the gates, and the righteous nation which keepeth faithfulness shall enter in.
13Jehovah our God, other lords than thee have had dominion over us; by thee only will we make mention of thy name. 14 They are dead, they shall not live; deceased, they shall not rise: for thou hast visited and destroyed them, and made all memory of them to perish. 15Thou hast increased the nation, Jehovah, thou hast increased the nation: thou art glorified. Thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth. 16Jehovah, in trouble they sought thee; they poured out their whispered prayer when thy chastening was upon them. 17As a woman with child, that draweth near her delivery, is in travail, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been before thee, Jehovah. 18We have been with child, we have been in travail, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought the deliverance of the land, neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen. 19Thy dead shall live, my dead bodies shall arise. Awake and sing in triumph, ye that dwell in dust; for thy dew is the dew of the morning, and the earth shall cast forth the dead.
20Come, my people, enter into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself just for a little moment, until the indignation be past. 21For behold, Jehovah cometh out of his place to visit the iniquity of the inhabitants of the earth upon them; and the earth shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

27:1 In that day Jehovah, with his sore and great and strong sword, will visit leviathan the fleeing serpent, and leviathan the crooked serpent; and he will slay the monster that is in the sea.
