“The immediate context of Isa. 40:3 is a good example of how inextricably linked Isaiah’s restoration prophecies are with ideas of reconciliation to and acceptance by God.” (G. K. Beale, A New Testament Biblical Theology, p. 549).
“God will again appear among men. This time, however, it will be an eschatological coming, a revelation of the glory of God that will display itself in His salvation.” (E. J. Young, Commentary on Isaiah, Vol. 3, p.30).
