Isaiah 9:8

The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it has fallen upon Israel.
Read Chapter 9

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Word. Septuagint, "death. "This also agrees with the Hebrew term, and with the context.

Gregory The Dialogist

AD 604
Jacob is called the destroyer, but Israel the one who sees God. Does not Jacob symbolize the Jews? And what does Israel represent, if not the people of the Gentiles? The latter, whom Jacob strove to destroy by bodily death, have surely come to see God with the eyes of faith. The word sent to Jacob fell on Israel, therefore, because the one whom the Jews rejected when he came to them has now been discovered and believed by the Gentiles. - "Morals on the Book of Job 1.2.57"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
