1 “Shout in triumph, (see 52:8,9. Zeph. 3:14. Quoted in Gal. 4:27) O barren, (refers to Sarah) You that did not bear; break forth into singing, (see 14:7) and cry aloud, you that did not travail with child: for more are the sons of the desolate (see 1:7) than the sons of the husbanded one," (these are of Satan) says the Lord. (There is only one time when being with child isn't a blessing. Those who aren't spiritually with child when Christ returns and haven't taken the mark of the beast will have reason to sing. The barren are the elect spiritual virgins awaiting the true Messiah to return. The true family will grow to such a degree once Christ returns and people actually see the true Messiah vs. the false. In God's house and in God's family as she is taken to wife at that great wedding [spiritually])
2 "Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of your habitations: spare not, lengthen your cords, and strengthen your tent-pegs; (It will need to be bigger for the true family)
3 For you shall break forth on the right hand and on the left (with truth); and your seed shall inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. (This is in the Millennium. See Rev.19:7,8)
4 Fear not; for you shall not be ashamed (see Lev. 26:6. Cp. 44:16,17): neither be you confounded; for you shall not be put to shame: for you shall forget the shame of your youth (i.e. the insults YOU WILL RECEIVE standing against the false messiah. Cp. Jer.3:24,25), and shall not remember the reproach of your widowhood any more. (They won’t be ashamed because they were barren, and not confused by the traditions and teachings in the name of Christ in this earth age.)

5 For your Maker (Heb. pl. Reference to the triune Yahaveh) is your Husband (spiritually); the Lord of hosts (Yahaveh Sabaioth) is His name; and your Kinsman-Redeemer the Holy (Set Apart) One of Israel; The God (Elohim) of the whole earth shall He be called. (this is the title connecting Yahaveh with universal dominion. Cp. "Yahaveh of the whole earth" in Josh.3:11,13. Zech.6:5. God created you the way you are, because He wanted someone just like you. You belong to Him. We all fall short at times, but He has given us the promise of redemption and blessings, if we take the right way. He is your Maker; the Creator of your soul that inhabits your flesh body. You are to honor and respect your earthly parents, but your Maker that created your soul is your Husband. He made you for His pleasure and companionship.)
6 For the Lord has called you as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit (see 1:4), and a wife of youth, when you were refused," says your God. (Do you understand the importance God places on you with that statement? What greater honor could be bestowed on any creation? The next event in the kingdom wedding happens at the end of this earth age. The virgins spoken of in Revelation, Chapter 14 are the only partakers at this point and Christ explains why.See Matthew 22:1.)
7 "For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies will I gather you out.
8 In an overflow wrath I hid My face from you for a moment (see Deut.31:17,18. Cp. Isa.8:17; 53:3; 64:7);
but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on you," (see "ancient", 44:7) says the Lord your Kinsman-Redeemer.
9 "For this is as the waters of Noah to me: (see Gen.6-9. Some codices read one word instead of two, "the days of Noah....when I swore, &c")
for as when I swore that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth;
so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with you [for ever], nor rebuke you [for ever]. (This is a promise to you IF you remain chaste [spiritually])
10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed (this occurs at the 7th Trump); but My kindness shall not depart from you,
neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed," says the Lord That has mercy on you.
11 "O you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
behold, I will lay your stones with fair colors, and lay your foundations with sapphires. (If you are on the right path as a Christian, you will find no comfort in the world today. The stones are looking all the way forward to the new Jerusalem of Rev. 21:18-27. Those who overcome have fantastic rewards awaiting them, but we have work to do first. Our work is to show others the right way and how to prosper.)
12 And I will make your battlements of agates, and your gates of carbuncles, and all your boundaries of pleasant stones.
13 And all your sons shall be taught by the LORD; (quoted in John 6:45) and great shall be the peace of your sons. (Teaching your children about the Lord will put them on the right path. The Word will show them how to become successful and prosperous. This even looks on into the millennium. God is telling us to take the right road, and it will definitely be worthwhile. You will be doing great.)
14 In righteousness shall you be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear (see "no", 5:8): and from terror; for it shall not come near you. (God takes care of those that love and serve Him.)
15 Behold, they shall surely gather together (i.e. the enemies of Israel [Ps.56:7; 59:4), but not by Me: whosoever shall gather together against you shall be overthrown for your sake. (cp.8:14. If you are on the right road, your enemies haven't got a chance. Why? God is on your side.)
16 Behold, I have created the smith that blows the coals in the fire (cp. 45:7,8), and that brings forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. (God created our enemies and the elements from which they are made. Our Father even created the waster, that is to say Satan. Satan wants to take as many of God's children as he can into the lake of fire with him. Allow yourself to get off the right path just a little, and watch Satan nip at your heels to drive you further off the right road. Order him out of your life in the name of Jesus Christ. Stay on the righteous path and prosper.)
17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me," says the Lord. (The weapons of the enemy won't prosper, because they aren't on the right road. Their evil plans are not the will of God. Those who falsely accuse you will be condemned. Not even Satan can touch you, if you are on the right path. God isn't promising us a rose garden. He is promising us the victory. He is promising we will prosper.)
