INTERCESSORY PRAYERS FOR ZION'S RESTORATION, ACCOMPANYING GOD'S PROMISES OF IT, AS THE APPOINTED MEANS OF ACCOMPLISHING IT. (Isaiah 62:1-12)
I—the prophet, as representative of all the praying people of God who love and intercede for Zion (compare Isaiah 62:6-7; Psalms 102:13-17), or else Messiah (compare Isaiah 62:6). So Messiah is represented as unfainting in His efforts for His people (Isaiah 42:4; Isaiah 50:7).
righteousness thereof—not its own inherently, but imputed to it, for its restoration to God's favor: hence "salvation" answers to it in the parallelism. "Judah" is to be "saved" through "the Lord our (Judah's and the Church's) righteousness" (Jeremiah 23:6).
as brightness—properly the bright shining of the rising sun (Isaiah 60:19; Isaiah 4:5; II Samuel 23:4; Proverbs 4:18).
