ITRODUCTIO. § 1. On thb PBEsoAtnr op Isauh. Isaidh'i name. The name borne by this great prophet was really YSsTia- ydhn, which signifies " the Salvation of Jehovah." The name was not an ancommon one. It was borne by one of the heads of the singers in the time of David (1 Ohron. xxv. 3, 16), by a Levite of the same period (1 Ohron. xxvi. 25), by one of the chief men who retnrned to Jerusalem with Ezra (Ezra viii. 7), by a Benjamite mentioned in ehemiah (xi. 7), and others. The form may be compared with that of Khizki-ydhu, or Hezekiah, which meant "the Strength of Jehovah," and Tsidki-ydhu, or Zedekiah, which meant "the Bighteonsness of Jehovah." It was one of singular appropriateness in the case of the great prophet, since " the salvation of Jehovah " was the sabject which Isaiah was especially commissioned to set forth. His parentage and family, Isaiah was, m he tells us repeatedly (ch. i. 1 ; ii. 1 ; xiii. 1, etc.), " the son of Amoz." This name must not be con- fonnded with that of the Prophet Amos, from which it differs both in its initial and in ^'ts final letter. , Amoz, according to a Jewish tradition, was a brother of King Amaziah ; but this tradition can scarcely be authentic, since it woald make Isaiah too old. Amoz wa« probably not a man of any high distinction, since he is never mentioned excepting as Isaiah's father. Isaiah was married, and his wife was known as " the prophetess " (ch. viii. 3), which, however, does not necessarily imply that the prophetic gift had been bestowed npon her. It may have been, as it was npon Deborah (Jndg. iv. 4) and npon Huldah (2 Kings xxii. 14 — 20) ; or she may have been called "the prophetess " simply as being the wife of " the prophet " (ch. xxxviii. 1). tsaiah tells ns that he had two sons, Shear-jashub and ISAIAS. i U ITBODUOTIO TO Maher-shalal-hasli-baz, whose names are connectied witli his prophetical office. Shear- jashub was the elder of the two by many yeans. HU date. The prophet tells ns that he " saw a vision concerning Jndah and Jerusalem in the days of IJzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah " (ch. i. 1). It would follow from this, that, even if he began his prophetic
