Isaiah 12:1-6 NIV
Songs of Praise
1In that day you will say:
“I will praise YOU, LORD.
Although YOU Were Angry With me,
YOUR Anger Has Turned Away
and YOU Have Comforted me.
2Surely GOD Is my Salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, The LORD HIMSELF, Is my Strength and my
HE Has Become my Salvation.”
3With joy you will draw water
from the wells of Salvation.
4In that day you will say:
“Give Praise to The LORD, Proclaim HIS Name;
Make known among the nations What HE Has Done,
and Proclaim that HIS Name Is Exalted.
5Sing to The LORD, for HE Has Done Glorious Things;
let this be known to all the world.
6Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,
For Great Is The HOLY ONE of Israel among you.”
This chapter contains a song of praise and thanksgiving for Redemption and Salvation by CHRIST, of which the preceding chapter Isaiah 11:1 is a famous prophecy.
It begins with an account of the church's former uncomfortable and now comfortable state and condition, Isaiah 12:1 the foundation of whose comfort was CHRIST her Salvation and Strength, and so her Song, which engaged her trust, and dispelled her fears, Isaiah 12:2 hence encouragement to others to apply to the Fullness of CHRIST for grace, and fresh supplies of it, to be had with joy, Isaiah 12:3 and then follow certain mutual exhortations to praise, exalt, and glorify CHRIST, with reasons enforcing them, Isaiah 12:4.
