I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem,
which shall never hold their peace day nor night:
ye that make mention of the Lord,
keep not silence. (Isaiah 62:6)
Ye that make mention of the Lord.
Or, Ye that are the Lord’s remembrancers, that jogged him as it were, and remind him of his people’s necessities and miseries. The kings of Israel, Persia, and of other nations, had their Mazkirim, or remembrancers, to mind them of those matters that concerned the weal public, and to these he here alludeth.
All the saints are such like officers, and must be active.
