Psalm 142:7 (b) This type represents the soul that is held in bondage by doubts and fears. He has not been set free either by CHRIST ( John 8:36), nor by the truth ( John 8:32).

Isaiah 42:7 (b) The type in this passage represents the soul that is held in the grip of sin by the Devil. (See Matthew 12:29).

Isaiah 53:8 (a) This refers to the fact that our Lord JESUS was bound by His enemies in Gethsemane, and was kept as a prisoner until He was nailed to the Cross.

Isaiah 61:1 (b) Our Lord indicates that the unsaved are so bound by their sins and by black darkness in their lives that they are unable to see GOD's way, nor live according to GOD's plan. They have not been set free either by the Word of GOD, or by the Son of GOD. They are help captive by the will of the Devil, as CHRIST describes in Luke 11:21.

1 Peter 3:19 (a) The word is used to describe hell. In the Old Testament hell consisted of two places. One place was a place of comfort, and those in that place were called prisoners of hope, as in Zechariah 9:12. They knew they would be delivered by the Lord JESUS after He put their sins away at Calvary. He did so and "led captivity captive." The other section of hell is a place of torment or punishment and no one who enters there is ever delivered. It is a permanent prison, from which there is no escape. (See also Isaiah 24:22; Isaiah 42:7; Isaiah 61:1; Luke 4:18).
