John N. Oswalt, professor of Old Testament and Semitic languages, Asbury Theological Seminary (Wilmore, Kentucky): “Isaiah calls to mind historic events which would give credence to the eschatological [last times, end times, judgement] hope. Gideon and his people, faced by an oppressive horde, discovered that in God weakness is strength, and they watched in amazement as God used them to bring deliverance (Judges 6, 7). He comforts the Church again after these great threatenings promising to restore them to great glory in Messiah.”
