Isaiah 31-35

 

  • 31:1-9 – The Kingdom of Judah feared the Assyrians, but God reminds them that their fear is misguided. They can trust in the protection of God no matter how scary their opponents are. They have no need to fear.
  • 32:15-20 – Though so much of Isaiah speaks of punishment and difficulties the Israelites and other nations have brought upon themselves, there are glimmers of hope, like this passage, that remind the Israelites that there will be restoration one day.
  • 33:1-12 – Once again, Assyria is in trouble.
  • 33:13-22 – God continues to reassure Judah that they don’t have to fear Assyria but that he will restore the righteous of their land.
  • 34:1-14 – The prophecies continue to look to the future when all enemies of God’s people are taken care of.
  • 35:1-10— This is about the return from Exile, but it’s also about life after the coming of the Messiah. Isaiah’s prophecies are almost always multi-layered.
