Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO ISAIAH 60\\.

As, in the two preceding chapters, the hypocrisy and formality, the
profaneness and immorality, that should abound in the latter day, and
even among professors of religion, are prophesied of; so, in this, a
very ample account is given of latter daylight and glory; of both the
spiritual and personal reign of Christ, with the latter of which it
concludes. The light and glory of the church, in the spiritual reign,
are described, \\#Isa 60:1-3\\ the numerous conversions of persons to
it from all quarters, east and west particularly, are prophesied of,
\\#Isa 60:4-8\\, the great usefulness those should be of unto it, in
enriching it, and building it up, and in glorifying it, is declared,
\\#Isa 60:9-13\\, as also the subjection of enemies to it; the favours
it should receive from kings, and the fame and renown of it through all
nations and ages, \\#Isa 60:14-16\\, its riches, prosperity, peace, and
safety, \\#Isa 60:17,18\\ and the chapter is concluded with an account
of the more perfect state of the church in the personal reign of
Christ, when there will be a perfection of light and righteousness; and
the number of God's elect will be complete, and they will be all
together, \\#Isa 60:19-22\\.
