Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice.(Ezekiel 3:16-19).like a trumpet and show.(declare in a way they can clearly understand and to do that one must see and know what the evils are).my people their transgression and the house of Jacob their sins..(show my people that their acts {reap what you sow} are causing them to miss the mark {the meaning of the word 'sin'} of My higher consciousness and how bad was it?.Ezekiel 2:1-8; 5:8-10)

Isaiah 58:2 Yet they seek me daily and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness and forsook not the ordinance of their God. They ask of me the ordinances of justice.(the proper and fitting manner of justice); they take delight in approaching to God.

Barnes Notes:."Probably this means, they profess to delight to know the ways of God; that is, his commands, truths and requirements. A hypocrite has no real delight in the service of God or in his truth, but it is true at the same time that there may be a great deal of professed interest in religion. There may be a great deal of busy and bustling.solicitude about the order of religious services; the external organization of the church; the ranks of the clergy and the claims of a liturgy. There may be much pleasure in theological discussion; in the metaphysics of theology; in the defense of what is deemed.orthodoxy. There may be much pleasure in the mere music of devotion. There may be pleasure in the voice of a preacher and in the power of his arguments. And there may be much pleasure in the advancement of the denomination to which we are attached; the conversion of people not from sin, but from a side opposite to us and not to holiness and to God, but to our party and denomination."

Isaiah 58:3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they and you see not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul and you take no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure and exact all your labours.

Isaiah 58:4 Behold, you fast for strife and debate and to smite with the fist of wickedness. You shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.

Isaiah 58:4 Behold, you fast for strife and debate.(to gain a selfish advantage).and to smite with the fist of wickedness.(they used what they felt was a spiritual advantage to feel superior and to scorn others:.Matthew 6:16-18). You shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.(but rather to be humble:.Luke 18:11-14.

Isaiah 58:5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? A day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head as a bulrush and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? Will you call this a fast and an acceptable day to the LORD? 

Isaiah 58:5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? A day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head as a bulrush and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? Will you call this a fast and an acceptable day to the LORD?

Isaiah 58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands.(Psalms 73:4).of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens and to let the oppressed go free and that you break every yoke?

Isaiah 58:7 Is it not to deal your bread to the hungry and that you bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when you see the naked, that you cover him and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh?

Isaiah 58:7 Is it not to deal.(original for word 'deal' means to 'to divide, to distribute').your bread to the hungry and that you bring the poor that are cast out.(original for 'cast' is 'in misery', that is cast in misery; word 'out' not in original, but implied, as to not knowing where to go for help).to your house?.(be caring for those less fortunate; fasting gives you great concern for others).when you see the naked.(that is, not having much:.Matthew 25:35-40; Job 31:16-22), that you cover him and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh.(staying involved with your family, relations and with those others in need as if they too were your family)?.(more on the poor amongst you:.John 12:8)

Isaiah 58:8 Then shall your light break forth as the morning and your health shall spring forth speedily and your righteousness shall go before you. The glory of the LORD shall be your rereward.(your protection).

Isaiah 58:9 Then you call and the LORD shall answer. You cry and he says, Here I am. If you take away from the midst of you the yoke, the putting forth of the finger and speaking vanity.(the ways of low consciousness man),

Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father. For the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear..(Micah 2:7)

Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God and your sins have hid his face from you that he will not hear..(God hides)

Isaiah 59:8 The way of peace they know not and there is no judgment in their goings. They have made themselves crooked paths. Whosoever goes therein shall not know peace..(if you don't have peace in your life, you know what kind of path you've been on)

Isaiah 59:9 Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us. We wait for light, but behold obscurity, for brightness, but we walk in darkness.

Isaiah 59:10-14 We grope for the wall like the blind and we grope as if we had no eyes. We stumble at noonday as in the night. We are in desolate places as dead men. We roar all like bears and mourn sore like doves. We look for judgment, but there is none, for salvation, but it is far off from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before you and our sins testify against us. For our transgressions are with us and as for our iniquities, we know them. In transgressing and lying against the LORD.(how? by not being of the same mind of love, which is higher consciousness present awareness).and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward and justice stands afar off. For truth is fallen in the street and equity cannot enter.

Isaiah 59:15-17 Yea, truth fails and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey and the LORD saw it and it displeased him that there was no judgment. And he saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor, therefore his arm brought salvation unto him and his righteousness, it sustained him. For he put on righteousness as a breastplate and an helmet of salvation upon his head and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing and was clad with zeal as a cloke.

And he saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor.(no person in a heart born of the ego, gives a damn about another's plight; if they did,  war, violence, hate, greed and poverty would have long ago been gone), therefore his arm brought salvation unto him.(the Creator had to step in by sending one of his high consciousness level {the realm of Christ}, so mankind could have an example and a hope of better things).and his righteousness, it sustained him. For he.(the one who became Christ).put on righteousness as a breastplate and an helmet of salvation upon his head.(thus should we all be: Ephesians 6:14; 1Thessalonians 5:8).and he put on the garments of vengeance.(mankind could now relax and be peaceable, leaving retribution and war to him who is fully able to handle it:.Romans 12:17-19).for clothing and was clad with zeal as a cloke.(willing and anxious to solve the negatives mankind had created; and so, our hope: 1Timothy 1:1)."

Isaiah 59:18 According to their deeds.(*), accordingly he will repay.(*), fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies and to the islands he will repay recompence.

Barnes Notes:."The idea here is, that God would 'repay recompense' or take vengeance on the foreign nations which had oppressed them.".Romans 12:19.

Isaiah 59:19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him..(so, the sentence 'When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him' should read 'When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall provide escape'; the word 'standard' is 'escape' in the original KJV; words 'against him' not in original, nor are words 'shall lift up';.JPS Translation.has it:."So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west and His glory from the rising of the sun, for distress will come in like a flood, which the breath of the LORD drives."; the JPS Translation has the verse referring to God in control even of the evil)
