Treasury of Scripture

And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

the deaf

(18) In that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book.--The open vision of the future is contrasted with the self-chosen ignorance of Isaiah 29:11. The "book" (the Hebrew has, however, no definite article) is, perhaps, the prophet's own message, or the book of the law of the Lord, which will then be understood in all its spiritual fulness. The doom of the "closed eyes" of Isaiah 6:10 shall then be in force no more.

Verse 18. - In that day - i.e., when that time comes - shall the deaf hear the words of the book; the spiritually deaf shall have their ears opened, many of them, and shall not only hear, but understand, the words of Scripture addressed to them by God's messengers. No particular "book" is intended - sepher being without the article, but the words of any writing put forth with Divine authority. The eyes of the blind shall see also out of obscurity. Men shall shake off the "deep sleep" (ver. 10) in which they have long lain, and have once mute "eyes to see" the truth.
