The greater part of this chapter is on the same subject with the chapter before, concerning the deliverance of the Jews out of Babylon, which yet is applicable to the great salvation Christ has wrought out for us; but the Isa. 52:13-15 are on the same subject with the following chapter, concerning the person of the Redeemer, his humiliation and exaltation. Observe, I. The encouragement that is given to the Jews in captivity to hope that God would deliver them in his own way and time, Isa. 52:1-6. II. The great joy and rejoicing that shall be both with ministers and people upon that occasion, Isa. 52:7-10. III. The call given to those that remained in captivity to shift for their own enlargement when liberty was proclaimed, Isa. 52:11, 12. IV. A short idea given here of the Messiah, which is enlarged upon in the next chapter, Isa. 52:13-15.
