Isaiah 26:8

Isaiah 26:8

Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited
for thee
Meaning by "judgments" either the ministration of the word and ordinances, called statutes and judgments, ( Psalms 147:19 Psalms 147:20 ) ( Psalms 19:9 Psalms 19:10 ) an attendance on which is the right way of waiting upon God, and where it may be expected he will be found and manifest himself, and favour with his gracious presence; or else the corrections and chastisements, which are done in wisdom and with judgment, in measure and in mercy, and in a fatherly way, and for good; and so the sense is, that they had not only followed the Lord in a plain and even way, but even in the more rugged paths of afflictive dispensations; nor did these things at all move them from their duty to him, and worship of him: the desire of [our] soul [is] to thy name, and to the remembrance
of thee;
to God himself, and to a remembrance of his nature, perfections, and works; to Christ, whose name is as ointment poured forth, and whose person is desirable, because of his glory, beauty, and fulness, because of his offices, and blessings of grace; and to his Gospel, which publishes and proclaims him, his grace, and salvation; and to his ordinances, which refresh the memory of his people concerning him, and his love to them shown in what he has done and suffered for them.
