Isaiah Romans

Isaiah 52:7-53:12 and the epistle of Romans.

7How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news of peace; who publishes good news of good things, and who declares salvation; Q Romans 10:15 who says to Zion, Your god reigns. 8Your watchmen will lift up their voices; with the voice together they will sing; for they will see eye to eye, when the Master will bring again Zion. 9Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Jerusalem; for the Master has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. 10The Master has made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the peoples; and all the ends of the land will see the salvation of our god. Isaiah 52:7-1011Depart, depart, go out from there, touch no unclean thing, P 2 Corinthians 6:17 S Lamentations 4:15 go out of the middle of her and purge yourselves, you who bear the vessels of the Master. 12For you will not go out with haste, nor go by flight, for the Master will go before you and the god of Israel will gather you together. Isaiah 52:11-1213My servant will understand, he will be exalted and extolled and be very high. 14Many were amazed at him, for his appearance was marred more than that of any man, and his form more than that of the children of men, 15so he will purify many peoples, and kings will shut their mouths because of him, for what had not been told them, they will see, and what they had not heard, they will understand. Q Romans 15:21 Isaiah 52:13-15 FE 1Who has believed our report? To whom is the arm of the Master revealed? Q John 12:38 Q Romans 10:16 2For he grew up before him like an infant and like a root out of the dry ground; he had no form nor comeliness; and when we saw that he had no beauty, we denied him. 3He is despised and humbled of men; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and we turned our faces away from him; we despised him and we did not esteem him. Isaiah 53:1-34Surely he has borne our sorrows and carried our griefs; Q Matthew 8:17 but we considered him struck, struck of god, and afflicted. 5But he was killed for our sins, he was afflicted for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on him, and with his wounds we are healed. 6We all have strayed like sheep; we have turned each to his own way; and the Master has laid on him the sins of us all. Isaiah 53:4-67He drew near and he was afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led as a lamb to the slaughter; and as an ewe before her shearers is mute, so he did not open his mouth. 8He was taken from prison and from judgment; and who can describe his anguish? For he was cut off out of the land of the living; Q Acts 8:32 and some of the evil men of my people struck him. 9He made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, although he had done no iniquity, nor was there any deceit in his mouth. Q 1 Peter 2:22 Isaiah 53:7-910Yet it pleased the Master to afflict him; he has put him to grief; he laid down his life as an offering for sin, that his seed may see, and his days be prolonged, and the pleasure of the Master prosper in his hand. 11He will see the reward of the travail of his soul, and be satisfied with the knowledge; he will justify the righteous; for he is a servant of many, and he will bear their sins. 12Therefore I will divide him a portion with the great and he will divide the spoil with the strong because he has poured out his life to death and he was numbered with the transgressors Q Mark 15:28 Q Luke 22:37 and he bore the sins of many and died the death of transgressors. Isaiah 53:10-12 (Isaiah 52:7-53:12 BRB)

Isaiah asks how beautiful are the feet and who has believed our report. This matches Romans quoting those same verses.

1|4 14How then can they call on him in whom they have not believed, 2|4 or how can they believe in him whom they have never heard, 3|4 or how can they hear without a preacher, 4|4 15or how can they preach if they are not sent forth? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of a messenger of peace and a messenger of good. Q Isaiah 52:7 Romans 10:14-1516But not all have obeyed the message of the gospel, for Isaiah said, My master, who has believed the echoes of our voice? Q Isaiah 53:1 17Therefore belief comes by hearing and hearing by the word of god. Romans 10:16-21 (Romans 10:14-17 BRB)

Isaiah asks to whom is the arm of Yahvah revealed? This matches Romans talking about Yahvah holding out his arms.

18But, I say, have they not heard? The echoes of their voices have gone out over all the land and their words to the ends of the world. Q Psalms 19:4 19But, I say, did Israel not know? First, Moses spoke: I will provoke you to jealousy by a people who are not my people and I will make you angry by a stubborn people. Q Deuteronomy 32:21 20But, Isaiah dared to say: I appeared to those who did not seek me and was found by those who did not ask for me. Q Isaiah 65:1 21But, to Israel, he said: All the day long I have stretched out my hands to a quarrelsome and disobedient people. Q Isaiah 65:2-3 (Romans 10:18-21 BRB)

Isaiah talks about the root that grew up before Yahvah. This matches Paul's discussion of the holy root.

13It is to you peoples that I speak, inasmuch as I am the apostle to the peoples, and perhaps magnify my ministry, 14but if I am able to make those who are my flesh zealous, I may give life to some of them. 15If their rejection has resulted in reconciliation of the world, how much more, therefore, their restoration, but life from the house of the dead. 16For if the firstfruits are holy, also the lump, and if the root is holy, so are the branches. Romans 11:13-1617If some of the branches were cut off, and you who are a branch of a wild olive tree have been grafted in their place, and you have become a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18do not boast over the branches. For if you boast, it is not you who sustains the root, but the root sustains you. 19Perhaps you may say, The branches were cut off that I might be grafted in their place. 20Well, they were cut off because of their unbelief, but you exist by belief. Do not be highminded, but have reverence. 21For if god did not spare the natural branches it may well be he will not spare you. Romans 11:17-2122Therefore consider the goodness and severity of god. On those who fell severity, but on you goodness if you continue in his goodness. Otherwise you will also be cut off. 23Even they if they do not stay in their unbelief will be grafted in, for god is able to graft them in again. 24For if you who have been cut from the wild olive tree, which is natural to you, and grafted contrary to your nature to become a good olive tree; how much more fruitful would they be, if they were grafted into their natural olive tree? Romans 11:22-24 (Romans 11:13-24 BRB)
