In this chapter, I. We are sure to find the grace of Christ, published by himself to a lost world in the everlasting gospel, under the type and figure of Isaiah’s province, which was to foretel the deliverance of the Jews out of Babylon, Isa. 61:1-3. II. We think we find the glories of the church of Christ, its spiritual glories, described under the type and figure of the Jews’ prosperity after their return out of their captivity. 1. It is promised that they decays of the church shall be repaired, Isa. 61:4. 2. That those from without shall be made serviceable to the church, Isa. 61:5. 3. That the church shall be a royal priesthood, maintained by the riches of the Gentiles, Isa. 61:6. 4. That she shall have honour and joy in lieu of all her shame and sorrow, Isa. 61:7. 5. That her affairs shall prosper, Isa. 61:8. 6. That prosperity shall enjoy these blessings, Isa. 61:9. 7. That righteousness and salvation shall be the eternal matter of the church’s rejoicing and thanksgiving, Isa. 61:10, 11. If the Jewish church was ever thus blessed, much more shall the Christian church be so, and all that belong to it.
