New Defender's Study Bible Notes
33:2 the maker thereof. Although the object of God’s “making” is not specifically named, the comprehensive promise of the next verse implies that the prophet was speaking about the earth itself. God “made it;” He also “formed” and “established it.” Compare Isaiah 45:18.
33:3 I will answer thee. This is one of the Bible’s greatest promises of answered prayer. Nothing is too hard for God nor too good for His people, if they pray according to His will (I John 5:14-15).
33:15 the Branch. “The Branch” is a title of the Messiah, the promised seed of David and coming King. See notes on Isaiah 11:1.
33:16 The LORD our righteousness. In the great age of the kingdom that is coming, Jerusalem will have—apparently as a parallel name—the same name as its divine King. Note Jeremiah 23:6.
33:17 the throne. God’s unconditional promise to David of an eternal kingdom (II Samuel 7:16) can be fulfilled only in Christ, for all other descendants of David were written off as a result of the wickedness of King Jeconiah (see notes on Jeremiah 22:30; compare Luke 1:31-33).
33:20 covenant of the day. Day and night have been regular since the first day of creation (Genesis 1:4-5). The sun will shine, and the earth rotate on its axis, forever (Jeremiah 33:25).
