Two Songs of Praise and Trust
What would characterize the attitude of the remnant?
Isaiah 12 contains two hymns of thanksgiving. Each hymn is introduced by the phrase, “you will say on that day” (1:1 and 4). Those who experienced the restoration spoken of in Isaiah 11 were to express their thanksgiving to the Lord (11:1-3).
Note: The word “salvation” is used for the first time in Isaiah in verse 2. The second hymn (11:4-6) praises God for His mighty acts and abiding presence.
