Isaiah Genesis

Isaiah chapter 1 covers the Adam and Eve, Fall, Cain's Offering, Killing Abel, and Cain's City stories in the book of Genesis.

1The vision of Isaiah, son of Amos, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah and Jotham and Ahaz and Hezekiah, king of Judah. Isaiah 1:1FE 2Hear skies and give ear land, I Genesis 1:1 for the Master has spoken, I Genesis 1:3 I have reared and brought up sons I Genesis 1:27 and they have rebelled against me. I Genesis 3:11 3The ox knows its owner and the donkey the crib of its master, but Israel does not know and my people do not understand. Isaiah 1:2-34Ah sinful people, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, sons that are corrupt. You have forsaken the Master and you have provoked the holy one of Israel to anger and you have gone away backward. Isaiah 1:45Why should you be struck any longer and be chastised? The whole head is sick and the whole heart faint. 6From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness in it, but wounds and bruises and swelling sores. They have not been closed nor bound up nor softened with oil. I Genesis 3:21 Isaiah 1:5-67Your country is desolate and your cities are burned with fire. Your land strangers devour in your presence and it is desolate as overthrown by strangers. I Genesis 3:23 8The daughter of Zion is left as a tent in a vineyard and as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers and as a besieged city. 9Except the Master of hosts had left to us a few survivors we should have been like Sodom and we should have been like Gomorrah. Q Romans 9:29 Isaiah 1:7-910Hear the word of the Master you rulers of Sodom and give ear to the law of our god you people of Gomorrah. 11Of what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to me, says the Master. I am full of the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed animals and I do not delight in the blood of bulls nor of lambs nor of he-goats. I Genesis 4:3 12When you come to appear before me who has required this at your hand to tread my courts? 13Do not bring vain offerings to me any longer. Their savor is an abomination to me in the new months and sabbaths you call an assembly. I do not eat what is obtained wrongfully and taken by force. 14Your new months and your appointed feasts my soul hates. They are a burden I am weary to bear. 15When you spread forth your hands I will hide my eyes from you and though you make many prayers I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood. I Genesis 4:10 Isaiah 1:10-1516Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean and put away the evil of your actions from before my eyes. Cease to do evil 17and learn to do good. Seek justice and do good to the oppressed. Plead for the fatherless and plead for the widows. Isaiah 1:16-1718Now come and let us reason together, says the Master. If your sins be as scarlet they will be as white as snow. If they be red like crimson they will be like wool. 19If you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land. 20If you refuse and rebel you will be devoured with the sword, for the mouth of the Master has spoken it. Isaiah 1:18-2021How is the faithful city become a prostitute. For once it was full of justice and righteousness lodged in it, but now killers. I Genesis 4:17 22Your silver has become dross. Your wine is mixed with water. 23Your princes are rebellious and companions of stealers. All of them love a bribe and run after rewards. They do not plead the cause of the fatherless nor does the cause of the widow come before them. Isaiah 1:21-2324Therefore, thus says the Master, the master of hosts, the mighty of Israel, woe, I will avenge myself of my adversaries and I will take vengeance on my enemies. 25I will turn my hand against you and purge away your rebellious men and remove all your iniquities. 26I will restore your judges as at 1st and your counsellors as at the beginning and afterward you will be called the city of righteousness and the city of faith. Isaiah 1:24-2627Zion will be redeemed with justice and her captivity with righteousness. 28The destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners will be together and those who have forsaken the Master will perish. Isaiah 1:27-2829For they will be ashamed of the idols which they have desired and they will be confounded by the witchcraft which they have chosen. 30For they will be like an oak whose leaves have fallen and like a garden that has no water. 31Their strength will be like cotton and their works like a spark and they will both burn together and there will not be anyone to quench them. Isaiah 1:29-31 (Isaiah 1 BRB)

Isaiah speaks about the skies and land. It also says Yahvah reared and brought up sons. These align with the beginning of Genesis where Yahvah makes Adam and Eve (Gen 2:4-7).

Isaiah says The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its lord's crib. This matches the way Adam and Eve rebelled against Yahvah when they listened to the voice of another, the serpent, and ate from the wrong plate, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (Gen 3:1-5).

Isaiah speaks about the foot and the head. These align with what Yahvah says to the serpent (Gen 3:14-15).

Isaiah says what happened is akin to the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, which is a story of angels driving Lot out of town for his own good and fire from the sky destroying the cities. In this case a cherubim drives Adam and Eve from Eden and uses fire to block returning (Gen 3:24).

Isaiah says I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed animals; and I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of he-goats. This aligns with the story of Cain's offering (Gen 4:3-5).

Isaiah says your hands are full of blood. This aligns with Cain killing Abel in the field (Gen 4:8-15).

Isaiah says once it was full of justice; and righteousness lodged in it, but now murderers. This aligns with the city Cain built (Gen 4:16-17).
