Journal Through the Bible: Week 58 Saturday

Isaiah chapter 23

Isaiah received a prophecy concerning the island of Tyre.

Does God issue any commands?

  • God commanded that a harp be taken about the city so that sweet songs could be sung to help people remember her after her destruction.

Does God make any promises?

  • God promised the destruction of Tyre, the mart of the nations. She would be forgotten for 70 years. (She was conquered by Alexander the Great.)
  • Following her rebirth, her markets would be for them that dwell before the Lord to supply their food and their clothing. (Tyre was known for its purple dyed cloth made from the murex shell. Lydia, in the book of Acts, was a seller of purple.)

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • He is the LORD of Hosts.

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Not that I identified.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
