CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
53:5 Scattered - Hath not only broken their bones, their strength, and force, but also dispersed them hither and thither, so as there is no hope of a restoration. Thee - Against my people. Thou - Thou oh Jerusalem, which they besiege.
I will turn against you, and you will be defeated by your enemies. Those who hate you will rule over you, and you will run even when no one is chasing you!
"And for those of you who survive, I will demoralize you in the land of your enemies. You will live in such fear that the sound of a leaf driven by the wind will send you fleeing. You will run as though fleeing from a sword, and you will fall even when no one pursues you.
2 Kings 17:20
The LORD rejected all the descendants of Israel. He punished them by handing them over to their attackers until he had banished Israel from his presence.
You are the one who gives us victory over our enemies; you disgrace those who hate us.
Like rocks brought up by a plow, the bones of the wicked will lie scattered without burial.
The wicked run away when no one is chasing them, but the godly are as bold as lions.
I will label them 'Rejected Silver,' for I, the LORD, am discarding them."
