13 See, my servant will act wisely ; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.
13 Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.
13 Behold, my servant shall act wisely;
13 "Just watch my servant blossom! Exalted, tall, head and shoulders above the crowd!
13 Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.
13 See, my servant will prosper; he will be highly exalted.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Isaiah 52:13
Commentary on Isaiah 52:13-15
(Read Isaiah 52:13-15)
Here begins that wonderful, minute, and faithful description of the office, character, and glory of the Messiah, which has struck conviction to many of the most hardened unbelievers. Christ is Wisdom itself; in the work of our redemption there appeared the wisdom of God in a mystery. Those that saw him, said, Surely never man looked so miserable: never was sorrow like unto his sorrow. But God highly exalted him. That shall be discovered by the gospel of Christ, which could never be told in any other way. And Christ having once shed his blood for sinners, its power still continues. May all opposers see the wisdom of ceasing from their opposition, and be made partakers of the blood of sprinkling, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost; obeying him, and praising his salvation.
