Go to Bible: Isaiah 32
 
Isa 32:1

“Behold, a king will reign in righteousness.” Isaiah suddenly shifts the subject, and Isaiah 32:1-5 refers to the future Millennial Kingdom, when Jesus Christ rules the earth. In this context, “righteousness” is doing what is right to God and others. [For more on the word “righteousness” having the meaning of doing what is right or just (“justice”), see commentary on Matt. 5:6].

“rulers will govern with justice.” When Christ sets up his kingdom on earth, he will be assisted in governing the earth by people who have been faithful to him (see commentary on Jer. 23:4). [For more verses in Isaiah that speak of the Millennial Kingdom, see commentary on Isaiah 2:2. For more on Christ’s future kingdom on earth, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].

Isa 32:3

“The eyes of those who see will not be closed.” There are verses about the blind being healed in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, but this is not one of them. This is about the mentally blind, those who just do not see the truth, finally being able to see and understand the truth. And those who have not been able to hear the truth will hear it when Christ reigns as king.

Isa 32:4

“mind.” The Hebrew word is lebab (#03824 לֵבָב), which is often translated “heart,” but which also refers to the mind, will, understanding, thoughts, reflections, attitudes, emotions, and other attributes of the mind. This is one of the places where the translation “heart” would cause confusion. In modern English, the word “heart” usually refers to emotion or passion, but that is not its meaning here. The function of the brain was unknown in biblical times, so functions that we generally assign to the brain, like thinking, attitudes, understanding, and good sense, were assigned to the heart. This verse is a promise of healing in the future Kingdom of Christ on earth, the Millennial Kingdom. At the Rapture and in the resurrections, everyone will be healed, not only of physical disease, but of mental disease as well. [For more on the Hebrew word “heart,” see commentary on Prov. 15:21, “sense.” For more on the meaning of “soul,” see Appendix 7, “Usages of ‘Soul.’” For more on the Millennial Kingdom, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].

Isa 32:15

“and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field.” In Isaiah 32:15-20, the prophet Isaiah again shifts from the present to the future Millennial Kingdom when Christ rules the earth. [For more verses in Isaiah that speak of the Millennial Kingdom, see commentary on Isaiah 2:2. For more on Christ’s future kingdom on earth, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].

Isa 32:16

“righteousness.” In this context, “righteousness” is doing what is right to God and others. When the Messiah reigns on earth there will be justice and righteousness in the wilderness and field. From the Fall of Adam until the Messiah reigns on earth, the wilderness and field have been places of injustice in every way: the crops, the animals, and of course the way in which people have treated each other. [For more on the coming kingdom of Christ on earth, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth.” For more on “righteousness” meaning justice and treating others in a godly way, see commentary on Matt. 5:6].

Isa 32:17

“the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.” In this context, “righteousness” is doing what is right toward God and people, and in effect is “justice.” There is no justice on earth now, but there will be in Christ’s Millennial Kingdom on earth. Christ will reign in righteousness, doing the right and just thing, and the effect of that will be peace, quietness, and confidence. [For more on “righteousness” having the meaning of doing what is right or just (“justice”), see commentary on Matt. 5:6].
