Isaiah 40:1 Comfort you, comfort you my people, says your God..(because God himself is comforting:.2Corinthians 1:3)

Isaiah 40:2 Speak you comfortably to Jerusalem and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned, for she has received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins.

Isaiah 40:2 Speak you comfortably.(original for 'comfortably' is 'to the heart'; comprised with Barnes Notes: To speak ‘to the heart is to speak in such a way as to remove the troubles of the heart and furnish.consolation and joy. It means that they were not merely to urge such topics as should convince the mind, but such also as should be adopted to minister consolation to the heart. So the word is used in Genesis 34:3; 50:21; 2Chronicles 32:6; the Creator is kind, even to the evil ones).to Jerusalem and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished.(felt so bad, as you would too, if your child had to go to war), that her iniquity is pardoned.(original 'satisfied', 'paid off', 'pleased', no longer counts against you), for she has received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins.

Double blessings; the Creator is so good even to those unthankful and to those who are evil:.Isaiah 61:7; Job 42:10; Zechariah 9:12..Paraphrased: 'Speak comfortably...we all cry over her that she had to go to war and now that it's over, her iniquity is pardoned for the things she did in war and she is now going to receive a double blessing for the sad things she did which even made her feel bad and want to run away from it all':.Romans 7:19 "For the good that I would I do not, but the evil which I would not, that I do."; the verse is talking about our contradictory.natures

Isaiah 40:3 The voice of him that cries in the wilderness, Prepare.(original is 'look' or look to).you the way of the LORD, make straight.(original 'pleasing').in the desert a highway.(a raised road that others will easily find).for our God..(talking of a spiritual pathway that you help others to see)

Isaiah 40:6,7 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, because the spirit of the LORD blows upon it. Surely the people is grass..(it's saying that humans are made for a short time on Earth, so, it's important to move out of the physical realm and into the spiritual, as the next verse shows)

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands for ever.(so, become a living word as Christ was, so, as He, you too will live forever:.John 14:6)..(that which sustains all that is never varies:.Malachi 3:6)

Isaiah 40:10 Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand and his arm shall rule for him. Behold, his reward is with him and his work before him.

Isaiah 40:12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand and meted out heaven with the span and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?

Isaiah 40:13 Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor has taught him?.(God's greatness)

Isaiah 40:14 With whom took he counsel and who instructed him and taught him in the path of judgment and taught him knowledge and showed to him the way of understanding?.(none; the Creator.is.the first cause of all we have, see and know of)

Isaiah 40:15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket and are counted as the small dust of the balance. Behold, he take up the isles as a very little thing..(Daniel 4:35; Romans 9:20)

Isaiah 40:17 All nations before him are as nothing.(Job 7:17,18).and they are counted to him less than nothing and vanity..(it's saying that, in comparison to just how incredibly powerful and responsible over absolutely everything God is, man is puny, as the next few verses show)

Isaiah 40:18 To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare unto him?

Isaiah 40:21 Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?

Isaiah 40:22 It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in;.(Psalms 39:5; 62:9-11)

Isaiah 40:23 That brings the princes to nothing. He makes the judges of the earth as vanity.

Isaiah 40:25 To whom then will you liken me or shall I be equal? says the Holy One..(?)

Isaiah 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high.(awaken to the reality of things).and behold who has created these things.(Nehemiah 9:6), that brings out their host by number. He calls them all by names by the greatness of his might.(Isaiah 40:12-15,17,18), for that he is strong in power.(Job 26:7,12).not one fails.(*).

Isaiah 40:27 Why say you, O Jacob and speak, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD and my judgment is passed over from my God?.(God just doesn't notice us)

Barnes Notes: "This verse reproves the people for their lack of confidence in God. The idea is 'If God is so great that the hosts of heaven are arranged with such unerring skill, causing all the stars to observe their proper place and their exact times.(how is this done?), the interests of his people are safe in his hands'."

Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator.(*).of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding.

Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary.(an invisible being, one in the spiritual realm, can be like this, one who operates on much higher frequencies {*} beyond the frequencies of physical matter on Earth and the visible known universe)? There is no searching of his understanding.(Isaiah 40:28; Job 11:7-9; 1Corinthians 2:16; Deuteronomy 29:29; Daniel 2:22; Hebrews 11:3; and not only that, no one finds God unless God wants to be found).

Isaiah 40:29 He gives power to the faint and to them that have no might he increases strength.

Isaiah 40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary and the young men shall utterly fall.

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait.(means to trust in Him).upon the LORD renew their strength, They mount up with wings as eagles. They run and not get weary and they walk and not faint.(Psalms 31:24).
