Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 12:2

_ _ Lord JehovahJah, Jehovah. The repetition of the name denotes emphasis, and the unchangeableness of God’s character.

_ _ strength ... song ... salvation — derived from Exodus 15:2; Psalms 118:14. The idea of salvation was peculiarly associated with the feast of tabernacles (see Isaiah 12:3). Hence the cry “Hosanna,” “Save, we beseech thee,” that accompanied Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem on that day (the fifteenth of the seventh month) (Matthew 21:9; compare with Psalms 118:25, Psalms 118:26); the earnest of the perfected “salvation” which He shall bring to His people at His glorious second appearance at Jerusalem (Hebrews 9:28). “He shall appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Compare Revelation 21:3, “The tabernacle of God is with men.” Compare Luke 9:33, “three tabernacles: one for thee,” etc. (the transfiguration being a pledge of the future kingdom), (Psalms 118:15; Zechariah 14:16). As the Jew was reminded by the feast of tabernacles of his wanderings in tents in the wilderness, so the Jew-Gentile Church to come shall call to mind, with thanksgiving, the various past ways whereby God has at last brought them to the heavenly “city of habitation” (Psalms 107:7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 12:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
