* and of the people.
The very remarkable passage contained in the first six verses
of this chapter seems in a manner detached from the rest, and
to stand by itself; containing a prophetical representation of
the victories of the Messiah over the enemies of his church,
here designated by the names of Edom and Bozrah. Though, as
Bp. Lowth observes, this prophecy must have its
accomplishment, there is no necessity for supposing that it
has been already accomplished. There are prophecies which
intimate a great slaughter of the enemies of God and his
people, which remain to be fulfilled: those in Eze ch. 38,
and Re ch. 20; are called Gog and Magog. This prophecy of
Isaiah may possibly refer to the same, or the like event.
