Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Another result of Jesus’ finished work is that Jehovah will divide Him a portion with the great, that is, with the saints, whose only greatness lies in their connection with Him. And He shall divide the spoil with the strong; here again the strong are those believers who are weak in themselves but strong in the Lord. Four reasons for His glorious triumph are given. 1) He poured out His soul unto death; 2) He was numbered with the transgressors, that is, the two thieves; 3) He bore the sin of many; 4) He made intercession for the transgressors.
