That there was a distinct reference to the second person of the Trinity, is clear from what John says, John 12:41. See De Sac. And, indeed, this repetition rather points out unwearied perseverance, as if the Prophet had said, that the angels never cease from their melody in singing the praises of God, as the holiness of God supplies us with inexhaustible reasons for them.

No “argument” can be drawn directly from this in favor of the doctrine of the Trinity, for the repetition of such phrases thrice in other places, is merely “emphatic,” denoting the superlative degree.

THE CONTEXT In chapters 1-5, Isaiah uses harsh words to speak of Judah's wickedness. 1. Most commentators, however, have supposed that there is here a reference to the doctrine of the Trinity. But Isaiah was a man living in the very midst of the history that was moving on towards this goal; and the cry of the seraphim, in the precise form in which it reached him, showed him to what it would eventually come on earth, whilst the heavenly shapes that were made visible to him helped him to understand the nature of that divine glory with which the earth was to be filled. BY APPEALING TO THE EXPRESS TESTIMONY OF REVELATION. my son, my son;' see also the repetition of the form of benediction among the Jews, Numbers 6:24-26 : Jehovah make his face to shine upon thee. Jehovah lift up his countenance upon thee. I. Thus it is that Isaiah in our text represents the seraphim as saying of the Holy or Separate God that the whole earth is full of His glory. The vision of God is the call of the prophet. Is God holy? Even the animals will have plenty to eat (Isa. He is in a different category. Fur… The vision of God is the call of the prophet. The Chaldee has rendered this, ‹Holy in the highest heavens, the house of his majesty; holy upon the earth, the work of his power; holy forever, and ever, and ever, is the Lord of hosts.‘ The whole expression is a most sublime ascription of praise to the living God, and should teach us in what manner to approach him. His wisdom and goodness, his power and holiness, are seen every where. CHAPTER 6. This commentary has been through Advanced Checking.. 1. Isaiah 6:4.—S. Thus, in Jeremiah 7:4, the Jews are represented by the prophet as saying, 'the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, are these. Holiness denotes, fundamentally, a state of freedom from all imperfection, specially from all moral imperfection; a state, moreover, realised with such intensity as to imply not only the absence of evil, but antagonism to it.

If God gives brighter displays of His glory here than anywhere else, then all men, in this life, are in the most important stage of their existence. God‘s holiness is the keynote of Isaiah‘s whole prophecies. The hills on which His people meet to worship Him are said to be holy mountains. It was necessary that all these things should be presented to the Prophet in vision, in order to produce a stronger impression on the people, and on Isaiah himself; for the vision was not less necessary to him than to the whole nation, because sharp and painful struggles awaited him, and he could not have boldly announced those events if he had not been previously confirmed. Two of the Divine attributes form the theme of the seraphs' hymn: God's holiness as inherent in Himself; His glory as manifested in the earth. The Pythagoreans said that numbers were the first principle of all things; but the Scriptures, according to which God created the world in twice three days by ten mighty words, and completed it in seven days, teach us that God is the first principle of all numbers. In like manner, the number "seven" is used by the Hebrews to denote a great, indefinite number; then a full or complete number; and then perfectness, completion. [Revelation 4:8] The ancient Rabbis, as R, Simeon Ben Joai, proved the trinity of persons from this text, saith Galatin, (a) appointing their posterity to repeat these words twice a day at least - viz., at the rising and setting of the sun, which also they do to this day, and when they do it they leap three times. He bears witness of that which he has seen. Though the rays are broken and the image is obscured, the moral glory of the Creator shines in the world; it is reflected in the verdict of the individual conscience; it is latent in the ethical sanctions upon which the permanence and welfare of society depends. All the prophecies of Isaiah carry this name of God as their stamp. One set commenced, and the others responded, either repeating the “ Holy, holy, holy,” or following with “ filling the whole earth is His glory .” Isaiah heard this antiphonal or “hypophonal” song of the seraphim, not merely that he might know that the uninterrupted worship of God was their blessed employment, but because it was with this doxology as with the doxologies of the Apocalypse, it had a certain historical significance in common with the whole scene. The holiness of God appears from the positive, uniform, repeated testimony of the sacred writers. The vision of God is also the chastening of the prophet. There has been no increase of either good or bad angels; but there has been an immense increase of mankind for nearly six thousand years. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. At Christ’s entrance on His ministry this truth shines out not so much as dogma but as fact. — The threefold utterance might be supposed simply a repetition for emphasis, but the same threefoldness in. But when the doctrine is "proved" from other places, it may be presumed that the heavenly beings were apprized of it, and that the foundation of their ascriptions of praise was laid in that. 1. Glory — Of the effects and demonstrations of his glorious holiness, as well as of his power, wisdom, and goodness. These Old Testament indications are remarkable because given to a people prone to polytheism. 1. To many trinitarians, the “thrice holy” is thought in some vague manner to mean the trinity, as mentioned above. Nowhere is the thought presented to us in the Bible with more moving force than in the record of Isaiah's mission. Matthew 13:14 cites Isaiah 6:9, Matthew 3:3 cites Isaiah 40:3, and Luke 4:17 quotes Isaiah 61:1-2, all referring to the prophet Isaiah, not just the prophecy. Notwithstanding these considerations, the providence of God affords the most abundant testimony to His holiness. (i) His glory not only appears in the heavens but through all the world, and therefore all creatures are bound to praise him. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. then what cause is there for humiliation! (3) And one cried unto another.—So in Psalms 29:9, which, as describing a thunderstorm, favours the suggestion that the lightnings were thought of as the symbols of the fiery seraphim, we read, “in his temple doth every one say, Glory.” The threefold repetition, familiar as the Trisagion of the Church’s worship, and reproduced in Revelation 4:8 (where “Lord God Almighty” appears as the equivalent of Jehovah Sabaoth), may represent either the mode of utterance, first antiphonal, and then in full chorus, or the Hebrew idiom of the emphasis of a three-fold iteration, as in Jeremiah 7:4; Jeremiah 22:29. Gram." Thus, Genesis 14:10 : 'The vale of Siddim, pits, pits of of clay,' that is, was full of pits; see Nordheimer's "Heb. The favourite name of God in the mouth of the prophet viz., “the Holy One of Israel” ( kedosh Yisrael ), is the echo of this seraphic sanctus ; and the fact that this name already occurs with such marked preference on the part of the prophet in the addresses contained in Isaiah 1:2-4:5, supports the view that Isaiah is here describing his own first call. xxix. ), I. 1 In the year King Uzziah died, * I saw the Lord seated on a high and lofty throne, a with the train of his garment filling the temple. The Chaldee has rendered this, 'Holy in the highest heavens, the house of his majesty; holy upon the earth, the work of his power; holy forever, and ever, and ever, is the Lord of hosts.' . Isaiah 6:3. A similar appeal he makes in Micah 6:3: ‹O my people, what have I done unto thee? It is more than goodness, more than purity, more than righteousness; it embraces all these in their ideal completeness, but it expresses besides the recoil from everything which is their opposite. Most commentators, however, have supposed that there is here a reference to the doctrine of the Trinity. And said, Holy, holy, holy.] (h) This often repetition signifies that the angels cannot satisfy themselves in praising God, to teach us that in all our lives we should give ourselves to the continual praise of God. Isaiah Begins to *Prophesy. As made known to the inhabitants of earth in the moral law and in the glorious Gospel. Historically we cannot separate it from the name of the Holy One of Israel, which with “the Lord of hosts” was afterwards so prominent in Isaiah’s teaching.

If the glory of a prince consists in the multitude of His subjects, then the glory of God must be displayed by the vast numbers of rational and immortal beings which He brings into existence in this part of His dominions. The twain are one. 6. (Prof. S. R. Driver, D. D.). The contemplation of the holiness of God should lead--. Not the land of Judea only, but the wide world, {as Psalms 97:6; Psalms 97:8 Isaiah 40:5} shall be full of God’s glory, when the gospel shall be preached to all nations. v., p. 363; Clergyman's Magazine, vol. The Christian Church has always thought the doctrine of the Trinity to be implied in this threefold repetition of holy: as it is also intimated in several other passages of the Old Testament, particularly in that form commanded to be used in blessing the people, Numbers 6:24-26; and Isaiah 48:16, of this book;” where see the notes.

In like manner, the number “seven” is used by the Hebrews to denote a great, indefinite number; then a full or complete number; and then perfectness, completion. And in the fulfilment of our prophetic work we need more than we know the abasing and elevating influences which the vision of Isaiah and the thoughts of today are fitted to create or deepen. The event which first claims our regard, as being the first in the order of time, is the condemnation of the apostate angels. If believers are holy, God made them so. It is not probable that the Jews so understood it; but applying to the expressions the fuller revelations of the New Testament, it cannot be doubted that the words will express that. This opening of "the eyes of his heart" was God's gift, God's call to him. Rashi (the 12th century French commentator), quoting the Talmud (Hagigah 14a), says that these curses mount up to a climax, the worst of all of them being: "The child shall behave insolently against the aged." And one called out to another and said, "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory. It makes him feel dirty beyond anything but simple expression, helplessly weak and feeling that he is doomed. The present life, amid other purposes, serves that of a state of trial; it is impossible, therefore, that in it a complete exhibition of His holiness can be made. This city, whose history is riddled with the wreckage of war and marked by the scars of empire, will exchange the sounds of violence and ruin for the clamor of reconstruction and international traffic. (1-8) The Lord declares the blindness to come upon the Jewish nation, and the destruction which would follow.

He abides in us and we in Him. Wherein does the world so reflect the being of God as to be the expression of His glory? “The Lord his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.” Observe what this teaching or this consciousness implies.

But there is another side to this teaching. B. F. Westcott, Christus Consummator, p. 163. God is in Himself the Holy One ( kâdōsh ), i.e., the separate One, beyond or above the world, true light, spotless purity, the perfect One. As Luzzatto has well observed, “the prophet, as if with a presentiment that the authenticity of the second part of his book would be disputed, has stamped both parts with this name of God, 'the Holy One of Israel,' as if with his own seal.” The only other passages in which the word occurs, are three times in the Psalms (Psalms 71:22; Psalms 78:41; Psalms 89:19), and twice in Jeremiah (Jeremiah 50:29; Jeremiah 51:5), and that not without an allusion to Isaiah. He beheld not the glory resting upon the symbolic ark, but the Lord sitting upon the throne, high and lifted up; not the carved figures of angels, but the seraphim standing with outstretched wings, ready for swift service; not the vapour of earthly incense, but the cloud of smoke which witnessed to the majesty which it hid.
