HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



ISAIAS 37

 

CHAPTER XXXVII.

 

Ver. 1.  Sackcloth.  Emblems of repentance.  Sennacherib's boasting (v. 13.) was chastised.  v. 36.  W.

 

Ver. 7.  Spirit.  Angel, or a different design.  2 Thes. ii. 8.  C.

 

Ver. 18.  Lands.  Heb. "all the lands and their land."  The parallel text is more correct, "the nations and their land."  Kennicott.

 

Ver. 24.  Carmel.  See 4 K. xix.  Ch.

 

Ver. 25.  Shut, &c.  Heb. matsor, (H.) "of Egypt," where Sennacherib had been.  C.

 

Ver. 29.  Lips, and treat thee like some ungovernable beast.  H.  Ezec. xxix. 4. and xxxviii. 4.  C.

 

Ver. 30.  Thee.  He directeth his speech to Ezechias.

 

Ver. 35.  Servant.  Hence it plainly appears that God protects the living for the sake of the saints departed.  To evade this proof, Prot. (Bible 1603) explain, "for God's promise sake made to David."  But God never made any such promise to him; otherwise the city would never have been destroyed.  W.

 

Ver. 36.  They.  The people of Jerusalem, or rather the soldiers of Ezechias, who saw those who had been slain, near Pelusium.  C.
