1:2 1Sa 15:16 Jer 13:15 Am 3:1 Heb 3:7,8
The manner of raising attention, says Abp. Newcome, in ver. 1,
2, by calling a man to urge his plea in the face of all
nature, and on the inanimate creation to hear the
expostulation of Jehovah with his people, is truly awakening
and magnificent. The words of Jehovah follow in ver. 3-5; and
God's mercies having been set before the people, one of them
is introduced in a beautiful manner, asking what his duty is
towards so gracious a God, ver. 6, 7. The answer follows in
the words of the prophet, ver. 8.
