Isaiah

Isaiah 66:12-14

12 For this is what the Lord says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. 13 As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” 14 When you see this, your heart will rejoice and you will flourish like grass; the hand of the Lord will…
Isaiah

Isaiah 65:13-16

13 Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “My servants will eat, but you will go hungry; My servants will drink, but you will go thirsty; My servants will rejoice, but you will be put to shame. 14 My servants will sing out of the joy of their hearts, but you will cry out from anguish of heart and wail in brokenness of spirit. 15 You will leave your name for My chosen ones to use in their curses;…

Isaiah 63:17

Isaiah 63:17 NIV 17 Why, Lord, do You make us wander from Your ways and harden our hearts so we do not revere You? Return for the sake of Your servants, the tribes that are Your inheritance. Isaiah 63:17 JUB 17 O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways? Hast thou hardened our heart to thy fear? Return for thy slaves, for the tribes of thine inheritance. Imagine if you will, a child about to be…
Isaiah

Isaiah 59:12-13

12 For our offenses are many in Your sight, and our sins testify against us. Our offenses are ever with us, and we acknowledge our iniquities: 13 rebellion and treachery against the Lord, turning our backs on our God, inciting revolt and oppression, uttering lies our hearts have conceived. The NIV gives this chapter the title Sin, Confession and Redemption which is very fitting. In the verses above we easily see confession. The initial verses though are all about their…

Isaiah 58:1-5

1 “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to My people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins. 2 For day after day they seek Me out; they seem eager to know My ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask Me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. 3…
Isaiah

Isaiah 57:15

15 For this is what the high and exalted One says—He who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. Today we come to the last verse in this chapter that has the word heart, and it is the heart of the contrite we look at today.…
Isaiah

Isaiah 57:11-13

11 “Whom have you so dreaded and feared that you have not been true to Me, and have neither remembered Me nor taken this to heart? Is it not because I have long been silent that you do not fear Me? 12 I will expose your righteousness and your works, and they will not benefit you. 13 When you cry out for help, let your collection of idols save you! The wind will carry all of them off, a mere…
Isaiah

Isaiah 57:1-2

1 The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. 2 Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death. Ah, we skip over Isaiah 52 and 53 which so strongly prophesize Jesus dying on a cross for our sins. Then skipping over Isaiah 54 about The Future Glory of Zion, followed by…
Isaiah

Isaiah 51:7-8

7 Hear me, you who know what is right, you people who have taken My instruction to heart: Do not fear the reproach of mere mortals or be terrified by their insults. 8 For the moth will eat them up like a garment; the worm will devour them like wool. But My righteousness will last forever, My salvation through all generations. This chapter has two sections, the first titled Everlasting Salvation for Zion (16 verses) and the second titled The…
Isaiah

Isaiah 49:19-21

19 “Though you were ruined and made desolate and your land laid waste, now you will be too small for your people, and those who devoured you will be far away. 20 The children born during your bereavement will yet say in your hearing, This place is too small for us; give us more space to live in.’ 21 Then you will say in your heart, ‘Who bore me these? I was bereaved and barren; I was exiled and rejected.…
Isaiah

Isaiah 46:11-13

11 From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill My purpose. What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do. 12 Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted, you who are now far from My righteousness. 13 I am bringing My righteousness near, it is not far away; and My salvation will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion, My splendor to Israel.…
Isaiah

Isaiah 46:8-10

Isaiah 46:8 NIV 8 “Remember this, keep it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. 9 Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me. 10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ Isaiah 46:8 YLT 8 Remember this, and…
