"Rabbi Steven Bob, Rabbi Emeritus at Congregation Etz Chaim in Lombard, Il, adjunct professor at Wheaton College, discusses God’s language of comfort in Isaiah 40, addressed to Israelites in exile. He emphasizes how the very sounds of the Hebrew words are comforting sounds, and relates this to the post-exilic leaders Ezra and Nehemiah, whose names mean help and comfort." from video introduction
