I was born to worship
JESUS has given me a word
‘perfect peace’
HIS promise to me
here’s the verse from the LORD
enjoy
and HIS song to me

3 You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Is 26:3). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

12 And after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (1 Ki 19:12). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

a low whisper – a sound, a thin silence
interesting right

Elijah complained that the Israelites had abandoned God and that he was the last prophet of the LORD. But Elijah was mistaken. God brought in succession a great wind, an earthquake, and a fire to ravage the mountain. But the prophet did not hear God in these events. Instead, Elijah heard the LORD in a small whisper. By this the prophet learned that sometimes God works in quiet ways (19:9b–14).

Isaiah 26:3. Love this verse!

10  For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept,
line upon line, line upon line,
here a little, there a little.”

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Is 28:10). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

9, 10. Here the drunkards are introduced as scoffingly commenting on Isaiah’s warnings: “Whom will he (does Isaiah presume to) teach knowledge? And whom will He make to understand instruction? Is it those (that is, does he take us to be) just weaned, &c.? For (he is constantly repeating, as if to little children) precept upon precept,” &c.

line—a rule or law. [MAURER]. The repetition of sounds in Hebrew. tzav latzav, tzav latzav, gav laqav, gav laquav, expresses the scorn of the imitators of Isaiah’s speaking; he spoke stammering (Is 28:11). God’s mode of teaching offends by its simplicity the pride of sinners (2 Ki 5:11, 12; 1 Co 1:23). Stammerers as they were by drunkenness, and children in knowledge of God, they needed to be spoken to in the language of children, and “with stammering lips” (compare Mt 13:13). A just and merciful retribution.

Verses 7–13 either continue the description of Samaria’s carousers or depict the people of Judah. In either case the religious leaders are portrayed as staggering, vomiting drunkards and the people as sarcastic mockers of the prophet’s message. Since they rejected the Lord’s offer of true peace, conditioned upon righteous living, He would send against them the Assyrians, whose foreign speech would serve as His mocking response to their jeering mimicry of the prophet.

9  “To whom will he teach knowledge,
and to whom will he explain the message?
Those who are weaned from the milk,
those taken from the breast?

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Is 28:9). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

10 To whom shall I speak and give warning,
that they may hear?
Behold, their ears are uncircumcised,
they cannot listen;
behold, the word of the LORD is to them an object of scorn;
they take no pleasure in it.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Je 6:10). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

10. ear is uncircumcised—closed against the precepts of God by the foreskin of carnality (Le 26:41; Ez 44:7; Ac 7:51).

41 so that I walked contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies—if then their uncircumcised heart is humbled and they make amends for their iniquity,

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Le 26:41). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

7 in admitting foreigners, uncircumcised in heart and flesh, to be in my sanctuary, profaning my temple, when you offer to me my food, the fat and the blood. You have broken my covenant, in addition to all your abominations.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Eze 44:7). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

51 “You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Ac 7:51). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

28  But for me it is good to be near God;
I have made the Lord GOD my refuge,
that I may tell of all your works.
