Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter 42 – verses 1 – 10

The Servant of the Lord

The Hebrew term for “servant” is abad – pronounced –  aw-bad. As a verb, abad means: to work; to serve; to help; to attend or wait upon. As a noun,  abad means: servant; assistant; right-hand-man or finally, “vassal”, which deserves additional explanation. Anciently , a vassal was a person who has entered into a mutual-obligation (covenant; pact; agreement; bond; treaty) with  a “lord” or monarch (suzerain) . The obligations often included total-support (loyalty) and mutual protection, in exchange for certain royal privileges for the vassal. Though the incidence (occurrence;occasion)  of vassalage was usually voluntary, sometimes it was forced , as in the case of Israel’s people involuntary vassalage to Assyrian over-lords as a result of Judah’s King,  Ahaz, who offered his people as a vassal nation in exchange for Assyrian protection and favored treatment. Otherwise a vassal’s service was voluntary and lasted throughout his lifetime. Total loyalty, obedience and sacrifice of one’s life to fulfill (execute; carry-out) the king’s or lords (Suzerain’s) will (wishes; laws) characterized the vassal. Such is the nature of  Jehovah’s covenantal relationship with man (Suzerain and vassal).
