In commenting on this verse, Matthew Henry offers this little treasure:
Behold, in this, the deepest mystery, and the richest mercy, that ever was.
By the light of nature, we see God as a God above us;
by the light of the law, we see him as a God against us;
but by the light of the gospel, we see him as Immanuel, God with us, in our own nature, and (which is more) in our interest.
I have said it before, and I shall say it again, if you haven’t read Matthew Henry’s commentary on the whole Bible, do it. Access it all free here. Look up your favorite verse and read his comments on it. I am almost 100% sure you will be blessed.
