Isaiah Isaiah

Isaiah 13:1-14:27 covers Isaiah's Vision in his own book of Isaiah.

FE 1The burden of Babel which Isaiah, son of Amos, saw: 2Lift up a banner on high mountains. Raise the voice to them. Wave the hand that they may enter the gates of the princes. 3I have commanded my holy ones. I have called the mighty ones in my anger, even those who became strong with my excellency. Isaiah 13:1-34The noise of tumult on the mountains like many peoples, a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of peoples gathered together. The Master of hosts is performing wonders. 5Warriors are coming from far away and from the end of the skies, even the Master and the weapons of his indignation to destroy the whole land. Isaiah 13:4-56Howl, for the day of the Master is at hand and it will come from almighty as a plunder which is made suddenly. I Joel 1:15 7Therefore all hands will be faint and every man's heart will melt. 8They will be afraid and terror and pangs will take hold of them and they will be in pain as a woman in travail I Hosea 1:3 and they will be amazed at one another and their faces will be as flames. Isaiah 13:6-89The day of the Master comes which has no remedy, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to make the land a desolation. He will destroy its sinners out of it. 10For the stars of the skies and their constellations will not give their light. The sun will be darkened in its rising and the moon will not cause its light to shine. Q Matthew 24:29 Q Mark 13:24-25 I Joel 2:31 11I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease and will bring low the haughtiness of the mighty. 12I will make a man more precious than gold, even men than the gold of Ophir. 13Therefore I will anger the skies and quake the land out of its place, I Amos 1:1 in the rebuke of the Master of hosts in the day of his fierce anger. Isaiah 13:9-1314They will be like gazelles when they flee and like sheep that have no one to gather them. Every man will turn to his own people and each flee to his own land. 15Everyone who is found will be thrust through and everyone who escapes will fall by the sword. 16Their sons will be dashed to pieces before their eyes and their houses will be spoiled and their wives ravished. Isaiah 13:14-1617I will stir up the Medes against them who have no regard for silver and have no delight in gold. 18The bows of young men will be broken in pieces and they will not have compassion on the fruit of the womb and their eyes will not pity sons. 19Babel, the glory of the kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans' excellency, will be as when god overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. I Amos 4:11 20It will never be inhabited nor will it be lived in from generation to generation nor will the Arabs camp there nor will the shepherds make their folds there, 21but wild animals will lie there and their houses will be full of doleful creatures and ostriches will live there and satyrs will dance there 22and the screech-owls will cry in their houses and jackals in their pleasant houses. Its time is soon to come and its days will not be prolonged. Isaiah 13:17-22 FE 1For the Master will have mercy on Jacob and will yet choose Israel and will set them in their own land and strangers will accompany them and they will add to the house of Jacob. 2The peoples will take them and bring them to their place and the house of Israel will inherit them in the land of the Master for male servants and female servants and they will take them captive whose captives they were and they will rule over their oppressors. Isaiah 14:1-23It will come to pass in the day that the Master will give you rest from your sorrow and from your anger and from the hard servitude in which you were made to serve 4you will take up this proverb against the king of Babel, and say: How has the ruler ceased and the zealous ceased. 5The Master has broken the staff of the wicked and the scepter of the rulers 6who struck the peoples in wrath, striking without instruction, who chastised the peoples in anger and persecuted them without hindrance. 7The whole land is at rest and is quiet and they break forth into singing. 8Yes, the fir trees rejoice over you and the cedars of Lebanon saying, Since you are felled no hewer is come up to cut us down. Isaiah 14:3-89The grave beneath is murmuring at your coming. It stirs up against you all the mighty men, even all the rulers of the land whom you overthrew from their thrones. 10All the kings of the peoples will answer and say to you, Have you also become weak as we? Have you become like us? 11Your pomp is brought down to the grave and the noise of your harps is dead. The dust is spread under you and the worms cover you. Isaiah 14:9-1112How you are fallen from the skies son of the dawn, for you have fallen down to the ground reviler of the peoples. I Obadiah 1:3-4 13For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into the skies. I will exalt my throne above the stars of god. I will also live on the high mountains in the outer regions of the north. 14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. I will be like the most high. 15From now on you will be brought down to the grave and to the bottom of the pit. Isaiah 14:12-1516Those who see you will stare at you and consider you saying, Is this the man who embittered the land and who quaked kingdoms 17and who made the world as a wilderness and destroyed its cities and who did not free his prisoners? Isaiah 14:16-1718All the kings of the peoples lie in glory, each in his own house. 19But you are cast out of your grave like an abominable person and as the raiment of those who are killed, killed by the sword, that go down to the stones of the pit as corpses trampled under foot. 20You will not rejoice with them in the grave because you have destroyed your land and killed your people. Isaiah 14:18-20The seed of the evildoer will never rise again. 21Prepare slaughter for his sons for the iniquity of their fathers that they do not rise nor inherit the land nor fill the face of the world with war. Isaiah 14:20-2122For I will rise up against them, says the Master of hosts, and will cut off from Babel the name and its offspring and the family and its generation, says the Master. 23I will also make it an inheritance for owls and pools of water and I will sweep it with the broom of destruction, says the Master of hosts. Isaiah 14:22-2324The Master of hosts has sworn, saying: Surely as I have thought so it will come to pass and as I have purposed so it will stand. 25I will break the Assyrian in my land and on my mountains tread him under foot. Then his yoke will depart from off them and his burden depart from off their shoulders. Isaiah 14:24-2526This is the end that is purposed against all the land and this is the hand that is stretched out against all the peoples. 27For the Master of hosts has purposed and who can disannul it? His hand is stretched out and who will turn it back? Isaiah 14:26-27 (Isaiah 13:1-14:27 BRB)

Isaiah says A burden concerning the fall of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw. This aligns with the vision Isaiah saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem (Isa 1:1).

The 13th passage of Isaiah is a soliloquy. Up to this point, and in each passage following, the book of Isaiah speaks to stories in other books of the Bible, but here, he stops and reflects with/by/on himself.

Put another way, this passage of Isaiah is the Signature Passage, the passage where the reader gets to learn about the author.
