Isaiah 9:7

isa 9:7

The "throne of David" is a phrase as definite, historic, historically, as "throne of the Caesars," and as little admits of "spiritualizing." (Luk 1:32); (Luk 1:33).

"Kingdom (Old Testament).

(See Scofield) - (Zac 12:8).

"Davidic Covenant,"

(See Scofield) - (Sa2 7:16), (Act 15:14-16).

(See Scofield) - (Gen 32:28).

Isaiah 9:12

isa 9:12

For all this his anger

See (Isa 9:17); (Isa 9:21); (Isa 5:25); (Isa 10:4).

The context explains. Jehovah's hand is outstretched still because His chastisement is followed by no amendment on the part of Israel.
