Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him. Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
Isaiah commanded that the word of the Lord be stored up by faithful disciples until history records its fulfillment. The prophet would wait for the Lord, who is now estranged from His people, and will hope in Him. Isaiah, Jehovah saves, Shear-jashub, a remnant shall return, and Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz, speed the spoil, hasten the booty, are by their very names signs and wonders of God’s eventual mercy to Israel and judgment on their foes.
