63:17 O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.
Cf. Isaiah 1:2; 64:8. Israel, collectively, the national Israel, recognizes God as the national Father (cf) Exodus 4:22,23, Doubtless the believing Israelite was born anew (cf) ; John 3:3,5; Luke 13:28 but the O.T. Scriptures show no trace of the consciousness of personal sonship. The explanation is given in Galatians 4:1-7.
The Israelite, though a child, "differed nothing from a servant." The Spirit, as the "Spirit of His Son," could not be given to impart the consciousness of sonship until redemption had been accomplished. Galatians 4:4-6 See "Adoption" ; Romans 8:15; Ephesians 1:5. (See Scofield "Ephesians 1:5") .
Heb. "goel," Redemp. (Kinsman type). (See Scofield "Isaiah 59:20")
