If the OP is asking if the term "high and lifted up" is a kind of "divine description" I think not. Almighty God is ever the "most high one" (or, "highest one") as height is associated with God while bad things are "below" such as Sheol, false kings such as the kings of Babel attempt to "seize" equality with God by ascending into the sky where God's throne is, but the rightful king, the messiah is exalted by God to his right hand for his obedience. That is the point. In exalting his servant God's kingdom is set far above the kings of the earth and in that sense he himself is "exalted" even though he is ever the most high.
As has been pointed out, the cedars of Lebanon (perhaps a species similar to Western Redwoods?) are high and lifted up but they shall be cut down:
New American Standard Bible Psalm 29:5 The voice of the LORD breaks
the cedars; Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
New American Standard Bible Isaiah 14:13 "But you said in your heart,
'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of
God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the
New American Standard Bible Isaiah 2:17 The pride of man will be
humbled And the loftiness of men will be abased; And the LORD alone
will be exalted in that day,
English Standard Version Isaiah 40:4 Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall
become level, and the rough places a plain.
- Almighty God is ever "the Most High" ("the Highest One")
- proud ambitious kings attempt to be like the Highest One but are cast down
- the Messiah alone is to be high and lifted up.
Ezekiel has the same theme:
ISV Ezekiel 31: 2“Son of Man, tell this to Pharaoh, king of Egypt and
his gangs: ‘Who do you think you are? What makes you so great? 3Think
about Assyria,b that cedar of Lebanon, beautiful with its branches,
like a shady forest, with an awesome height, its summit touches the
clouds. 4Abundant water made it great, Subterranean rivers made it
grow. Rivers surrounded the area where it had been planted, and water
channels nourished all the trees in the fields. 5That’s why it grew
taller than any of the trees in the fields. Its boughs flourished. Its
branches grew luxurious because all the water made it spread out well.
6The birds in the sky made nests in its boughs; all the beasts of the
field gave birth under its branches. All the great nations rested in
its shade. 7‘Beautiful because it was so great, with its long
branches, it was rooted in many bodies of water.c 8The cedars in God’s
garden could not compare to it; Fir trees could not match its boughs.
The plane treed never grew branches like it, and no tree in God’s
garden compares to its beauty. 9I made it beautiful, including all of
its branches; all the trees in God’s garden of Eden envied it!’”
Assyria’s Fall Due to Arrogance 10“Therefore this is what the Lord GOD
says: ‘Because of its towering height, with its summit reaching into
the clouds, and because it was haughty in its position,e 11I turned it
over to the leader of thosef nations, who dealt with it thoroughly. I
have driven it away because of its wickedness. 12Foreign dictators
have trimmed it down to size and abandoned it. Its branches have
fallen off on mountains and in all the valleys. Its boughs have broken
off in all the ravines of the land. All the nations of the earth have
moved out of its shade and abandoned it. 13All the birds in the sky
will live among its ruins, and the wild animalsg will forage among its
branches. 14As a result, none of its watered trees will grow tall,
their tops will never reach to the clouds, and they’ll never grow so
high again, because all of them have been appointedh to death in the
world beneath where human beings go, that is, down to the Pit.’”i
Ezekiel 17:23 "On the high mountain of Israel I will plant it, that it
may bring forth boughs and bear fruit and become a stately cedar. And
birds of every kind will nest under it; they will nest in the shade of
The gospels refer to this:
Berean Literal Bible Luke 3:5 Every valley will be filled, and every
mountain and hill will be made low; and the crooked will become into
straight, and the rough ways into smooth.
Paul refers to this:
NASB Phil 2: 5Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in
Christ Jesus, 6who, although He existed in the form of [a] God, did
not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped [seized], 7but
emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in
the likeness of men. 8Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled
Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a
cross. 9For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on
Him the name [title] which is above every name [title], 10so that at
the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and
on earth and under the earth, 11and that every tongue will confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God [that is] the Father.
So I see it as a description of the messiah, not of Yehovah:
NASB John 12: 31“Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of
this world will be cast out. 32“And I, if I am lifted up from the
earth, will draw all men to Myself.” 33But He was saying this to
indicate the kind of death by which He was to die. 34The crowd then
answered Him, “We have heard out of the Law that the Christ is to
remain forever; and how can You say, ‘The Son of Man must be lifted
up’? Who is this Son of Man?” 35So Jesus said to them, “For a little
while longer the Light is among you. Walk while you have the Light, so
that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does
not know where he goes. 36“While you have the Light, believe in the
Light, so that you may become sons of Light.”
These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and hid Himself from them. 37But though He had performed so many signs before them, yet
they were not believing in Him. 38This was to fulfill the word of
Isaiah the prophet which he spoke: “LORD, WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT?
AND TO WHOM HAS THE ARM OF THE LORD BEEN REVEALED?” 39For this reason
they could not believe, for Isaiah said again, 40“HE HAS BLINDED THEIR
EYES AND HE HARDENED THEIR HEART, SO THAT THEY WOULD NOT SEE WITH
THEIR EYES AND PERCEIVE WITH THEIR HEART, AND BE CONVERTED AND I HEAL
THEM.” 41These things Isaiah said because he saw His glory, and he
spoke of Him.
Association between the messiah's exaltation and Yehovah's exaltation does not mean they are identical, only that in the exaltation of his messiah, Yehovah exalts himself in the eyes of his subjects.
