||What message have verses 51:17-52 for a backslider who is in bondage under the power of the world, and feels himself the object of God's chastisement? (a) Are salvation and holiness still possible for him? Consider in this connection the seeming hopelessness of Zion's condition (51:18-20; cf. La. 2:13). (b) If such a backslider is to be saved, what must he himself do? See 52:1,2. Consider in this connection God's strong words of promise and reassurance in 52:3-6.
||Let your imagination picture the joy of Zion described in 52:7-12. What application does the apostle Paul make of this
passage in Rom. 10:14, 15 and 2 Cor. 5:17
