Treasury of Scripture

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, said the LORD that has mercy on you.

the mountains

Isaiah 51:6,7

(10) For the mountains shall depart.--Better, "may depart." The same bold hyperbole is found in Psalm 46:3; Jeremiah 31:36; Matthew 24:35.

The covenant of my peace.--The phrase is taken from Numbers 25:12, and re-appears in Ezekiel 34:25; Ezekiel 37:26. "Peace," as elsewhere in the Old Testament, includes well-nigh all that is wrapped up in the "salvation" of the New. . . .

Verse 10. - The mountains shall depart... but my kindness shall not depart (comp. Matthew 24:35, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away"). Everything material may fail, depart, perish; but God's promises remain firm and secure for ever. The covenant of my peace; or, my covenant of peace - any promise which God makes to his creatures for their advantage (comp. Numbers 25:12; Ezekiel 34:25; Ezekiel 37:26; Malachi 2:5). Here there is a special allusion to the promise just made and confirmed by oath (ver. 9).
