Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 66:24

_ _ go forth, and look — as the Israelites looked at the carcasses of the Egyptians destroyed at the Red Sea (Exodus 14:30; compare Isaiah 26:14-19; Psalms 58:10; Psalms 49:14; Malachi 4:1-3).

_ _ carcasses, etc. — (Isaiah 66:16), those slain by the Lord in the last great battle near Jerusalem (Zechariah 12:2-9; Zechariah 14:2-4); type of the final destruction of all sinners.

_ _ worm ... not die — (Mark 9:44, Mark 9:46, Mark 9:48). Image of hell, from bodies left unburied in the valley of Hinnom (whence comes Gehenna, or “hell”), south of Jerusalem, where a perpetual fire was kept to consume the refuse thrown there (Isaiah 30:33). It shall not be inconsistent with true love for the godly to look with satisfaction on God’s vengeance on the wicked (Revelation 14:10). May God bless this Commentary, and especially its solemn close, to His glory, and to the edification of the writer and the readers of it, for Jesus’ sake!

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 66:24

And they shall go forth, and look upon the (k) carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their (l) worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorrence (m) to all flesh.

(k) As he who declared the happiness that will be within the Church for the comfort of the godly, so does he show what horrible calamity will come to the wicked, that are out of the Church.

(l) Meaning, a continual torment of conscience, which will always gnaw them, and never permit them to be at rest, (Mark 9:44).

(m) This is the just recompense for the wicked, who contemning God and his word, will be by God's just judgments abhorred by all his creatures.

Is this what it says?? 9005 And 3318 go out 9007 and 7200 see 9004 toward 6297 carcass [the word is not in the plural they translated it plural why?? ] 9005 the 0376 men 9005 the 6586 sinners 9004 toward 3588 that 8438 female scarlet worm [mem ם means to raise up not translated why?? ] to raise up? not 3808 to die 4191 and 9007 fire 0784 [mem ם means to raise up not translated why?? ] to raise up? not 3808 to quench 3518 and 9007 come to pass 1961 abhorrence 1860 towards 9009 all 3605 flesh .1320 And there is something you should know about the female scarlet worm . In the Hebrew it is a particular female worm, which is called the "crimson worm and this is how it relates to the death of Christ on the cross.First, the crimson worm climbs on the tree all by itself. Nobody forces it to get on the tree. The crimson worm knows when it climbs on the tree that it will not come back down alive. It is going to the tree to birth a family and to do that it must die. Once on the tree, the crimson worm then attaches itself to the tree. It makes sure it is secure because the body of the worm will eventually be the shelter for the young, which are born.During the birthing process, she secretes a crimson fluid or gel. The scarlet fluid covers her entire body and all the eggs she lays. It also leaves a stain on the tree, which will never fade away with the passing of time! scarlet the color of blood.On the morning of the fourth day, the worm has pulled the head and tail together and is now in the shape of a heart on the tree but it is no longer crimson. It is now a wax, which is white as snow.The crimson worm is also very fragrant when it is crushed. No other life in history has sweetened the pathway of humanity like the crimson worm who was crushed for our sin, Jesus. I do not believe for one moment it was a mistake that He called Himself a worm! He is the Crimson Worm who died and was crushed for you. 9005 And 3318 go out 9007 and 7200 see 9004 toward 6297 carcass 9005 the 0376 men 9005 the 6586 sinners toward that female scarlet worm ( to raise up? ) not to die and fire not to quench and come to pass abhorrence towards all flesh .

Can the right hand offend thee ? a hand cannot think! It is a metaphor! The offender is the Adam of the earth.Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.The second Adam is Christ From above he is the head of the body one of thy members . Isaiah 66 The beginning of the new creation . from new moon to new moon is the communion breaking of bread and wine of the new covenant. The old was the shadow of the new. Or do we believe that the scripture means that once a month all flesh comes to some location on earth to worship God by going out to see people being tortured in a fire?Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. Look and see its their worm it is not their worms. For every one shall be salted with fire . Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt . salt means made acceptable. For every one shall be salted with fire [ made acceptable ] Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. shall be saved; yet so as by fire./ For every one shall be salted with fire [ made acceptable ] For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe. And through him to reconcile all things unto himself, making peace through the blood of his cross, both as to the things that are on earth, and the things that are in heaven. all salted with fire Savior of all men all things reconcile unto himself. But what happens when you believe what is written then you are labeled a heretic.
