Journal Through the Bible: Week 56 Saturday

Isaiah chapter 5

Reading the first verse reminded me of the Song of Solomon. I thought for sure this chapter would be about the Beloved and the Bride in the vineyard. Well, yes, of a sort, but with a disastrous twist!

Does God issue any commands?

  • No, but He made it clear that the commands He had already given had been broken.

Does God make any promises?
  • God would remove His hedge around His vineyard (Israel) to allow them to be spoiled by oppressors.
  • The land would no longer be fruitful and the houses would be desolate.
  • As fire devours so would rulers that pervert judgment by rewarding the wicked and punishing the righteous be devoured by other nations. 

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?
  • Jesus is the well-beloved. He planted grapes (chose the people of Israel as His own) but it brought forth wild grapes (they rejected Him as their God).
  • Jesus is the LORD of hosts exalted in judgment.
  • Jesus is the Holy One of Israel that the workers of iniquity taunt and challenge.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Not that I identified.
