comment “High and lifted up” in Isaiah
In addition to your footnote, the root words occur also in Isa 13:2; 37:23; 49:22. And although the phrase "high & lifted up" does appear unique to Isaiah, a thorough study of this phrase should consider all the verses where this pair of words co-occur. Namely: Lv 22:9, Nu 24:7; 2Ki 19:22; Pro 30:13; Eze 10:16. (They also co-occur, albeit less "closely" in these passages: Gen 7:17; Lv 22:15-16; Nu 18:32; Ex 20:28; Dan 11:12)

comment Dealing with the swine as property in Mt 8
I don't understand your question. Are you asking whether it was warranted for Jesus to destroy the herdsmen's property, OR whether it was warranted for the herdsmen to own swine? Perhaps your question could be stated like this: "Does Jesus' destruction of the herdsmen's property (the swine) provide theological insight into the ownership of property in general?" -- is that what you're asking?

comment What is the meaning of “husband of one wife” in 1 Timothy 3:2?
I down-voted you because, while you make some interesting points, you are basing your interpretation on theological presuppositions and interpretations of other passages. The OP was interested in the textual considerations of the verse itself that might have a bearing on it's interpretation.

comment Is the “captain of the Lord's host” an angel or God Himself?
@DavidC: ...To reply to your second question, I am not familiar with any occasions in Scripture where the words of an angel are quoted with an attribution of "the Lord said" (except when it was "the Angel of the Lord").
