Isaiah 27:5 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Or let him - The Hebrew word rendered here or (או 'ô) means "unless;" and the sense is, the enemies of the Jewish people shall be completely destroyed as briers are by fire, "unless" they flee to God for a refuge.
Take hold of my strength - That is, let the enemy take hold of me to become reconciled to me. The figure here is taken probably from the act of fleeing to take hold of the horns of the altar for refuge when one was pursued (compare 1 Kings 1:50; 1 Kings 2:28).
That he may make peace with me - With me as the guardian of the vineyard. If this were done they would be safe.
And he shall make peace with me - That is, even the enemy of me and of my vineyard "may" be permitted to make peace with me. Learn,
(1) That God is willing to be reconciled to his enemies.
(2) That peace must be obtained by seeking his protection; by submitting to him, and laying hold of his strength.
(3) That if this is not done, his enemies must be inevitably destroyed.
(4) He will defend his people, and no weapon that is formed against them shall prosper.

2 Corinthians 5:20
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

"Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation."
For You have been a defense for the helpless, A defense for the needy in his distress, A refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat; For the breath of the ruthless Is like a rain storm against a wall.
"The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You.
LORD, You will establish peace for us, Since You have also performed for us all our works.
