63:16  Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.

our Father

Cf. Isaiah 1:2 ; 64:8 . Israel, collectively, the national Israel, recognizes God as the national Father (cf) Exodus 4:22 Exodus 4:23 Doubtless the believing Israelite was born anew (cf) ; John 3:3 John 3:5 ; Luke 13:28 but the O.T. Scriptures show no trace of the consciousness of personal sonship. The explanation is given in Galatians 4:1-7 .

The Israelite, though a child, "differed nothing from a servant." The Spirit, as the "Spirit of His Son," could not be given to impart the consciousness of sonship until redemption had been accomplished. Galatians 4:4-6 See "Adoption" ; Romans 8:15 ; Ephesians 1:5 . (See Scofield "Ephesians 1:5") .

redeemer Heb. "goel," Redemp. (Kinsman type). (See Scofield "Isaiah 59:20")

63:17  O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.


(See Scofield "Psalms 19:9") .
