Verses 1-23

Isaiah 51:1 Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.

Isaiah 51:1Comments- The nation of Israel was formed within the loins of Abraham. Anyone who has ever studied geology knows that each rock quarry has its unique pattern and features that are different from all other rock quarries. Even a hole dug in the ground had it own unique layers of soil.

Isaiah 51:2 Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

Isaiah 51:2"for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him" - Comments- At this point in history, only one man on earth was receiving God's blessings, and every one else on earth was living under the curse.
