“And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable words.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:11 Is at rest - All men sit still to take their ease. All is peaceable. This was the state of the empire which at that time ruled all.
1:12 Angel of the Lord - The angel, the Lord Christ.
1:14 Cry thou - Now publish what thou hearest, and assure my poor captive church, that God will do good for her.
1:15 A little displeased - With mine own people, that is, in comparison of the anger I bear against the Heathen. Helped forward - Attempted to destroy whom I would but correct.
