Today's Passage: Isaiah 9:8-21
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
8. The LORD has spoken out against Jacob; his judgment has fallen upon Israel.
9. And the people of Israel and Samaria, who spoke with such pride and arrogance, will soon know it.
10. They said, "We will replace the broken bricks of our ruins with finished stone, and replant the felled sycamore-fig trees with cedars."
11. But the LORD will bring Rezin's enemies against Israel and stir up all their foes.
12. The Syrians from the east and the Philistines from the west will bare their fangs and devour Israel.
But even then the LORD's anger will not be satisfied. His fist is still poised to strike.
13. For after all this punishment, the people will still not repent. They will not seek the LORD of Heaven's Armies.
14. Therefore in a single day the LORD will destroy both the head and the tail, the noble palm branch and the lowly reed.
15. The leaders of Israel are the head, and the lying prophets are the tail.
16. For the leaders of the people have misled them. They have led them down the path of destruction.
17. That is why the LORD takes no pleasure in the young men and shows no mercy even to the widows and orphans. For they are all wicked hypocrites; and they all speak foolishness. But even then the LORD'S anger will not be satisfied. His fist is still poised to strike.
18. This wickedness is like a brush fire. It burns not only briers and thorns but also sets the forests ablaze. Its burning sends up clouds of smoke.
19. The land will be blackened by the fury of the LORD of Heaven's Armies. The people will be fuel for the fire, and no one will spare even his own brother.
20 They will attack their neighbor on the right but will still be hungry. They will devour their neighbor on the left but will not be satisfied. In the end they will even eat their own children. 21. Manasseh will feed on Ephraim, Ephraim will feed on Manasseh, and both will devour Judah. But even then the LORD'S anger will not be satisfied. His fist is still poised to strike.
Isaiah 9:8-21 NLT
Oh wow, that is where it comes from.
God wants you to know how His story happened.
How He created the earth, made his children, and how traditions became interwoven into his family.
Thank you for coming today.
Please leave your initials and a comment.
I pray for you every day.
And I will be back here tomorrow,
I hope I will see you here too.
