Excerpt from The Analyzed Bible, Vol. 2: The Prophecy of Isaiah The message of comfort to be delivered is first summarized. The prophet is charged to speak comfortably, that is to the heart of Jerusalem, because her warfare, that is the long-continued period of her trouble, is ac complished, her iniquity is pardoned, and the measure of her chastisement is ended, see ing that she has received double for all her sins. In all the earlier messages the dominant thought was that the purpose of judgment is peace. The burden of this last division is that when judgment is accomplished, peace will be the result.
