Isaiah Jonah

Isaiah 21:1-10 and the book of Jonah.

FE 1The burden of the wilderness of the sea: As a whirlwind from the south, sweeping through from the wilderness; so it comes from a far off land. Isaiah 21:12A grievous vision is declared to me. The oppressor oppresses and the plunderer plunders. I Habakkuk 1:2 Go up Elam and the Mountains of Media. All its sighing I have ceased. Isaiah 21:23Therefore my loins are filled with pain; pangs have taken hold on me, as the pangs of a woman in travail; I was dismayed so that I could not hear, I was terrified so that I could not see. 4My heart failed, pangs made me quake; the beauty of my pleasures has been turned into terror to me. Isaiah 21:3-45Prepare the tables, watch in the watchtowers, eat, drink; arise, princes, and anoint the shields. Isaiah 21:56For thus said the Master to me: Go set a watchman that he may declare what he sees. I Habakkuk 2:1 7He saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a rider on a donkey, and a rider on a camel; and he listened diligently with great attention. Isaiah 21:6-78Then the watchman cried into my ears, saying, Master, I stand continually in the daytime, and I stand on my watchtower every night. 9A man came from the pair of horsemen. He answered and said, Babel is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods are broken to the ground. Isaiah 21:8-910There is no one to reap and no one to thresh; what I have heard of the Master the god of Israel I have declared to you. Isaiah 21:10 (Isaiah 21:1-10 BRB)


4But the Master sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the boat was in danger of being broken. Jonah 1:4-5 (Jonah 1:4 BRB)


1The word of the Master came to Jonah FE a 2nd time saying, 2Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call to it the calling which I tell you. Jonah 3:1-23Jonah arose and went to Nineveh according to the word of the Master. Nineveh was a great city to god, of 3 days journey. 4Jonah began to go into the city 1 day's journey and called and said, Yet 40 days and Nineveh will be overthrown. I Isaiah 17:1 A 2 Corinthians 6:7 Jonah 3:3-5 (Jonah 3:1-4 BRB)

Repentance and Fast

5The men of Nineveh believed in god and called a fast and put on sackcloth from the greatest of them even to the least. I Isaiah 17:4 H Matthew 12:41 H Luke 11:32 A Hebrews 13:2 6The word reached the king of Nineveh and he arose from his throne and took off his crown from his head and covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes. 7He caused it to be proclaimed throughout Nineveh: Jonah 3:6-7By the decree of the king and his nobles, Jonah 3:7Let neither children of men nor animals, herd nor flock, taste anything. Do not let them feed, nor drink water, 8but let children of men and animals be covered with sackcloth and call to god with groaning. Yes let every man turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. 9Who knows if god will turn and repent FE and turn from us his fierce anger that we may not perish? I Isaiah 17:7-8 Jonah 3:7-9 (Jonah 3:5-9 BRB)


5Jonah went out of the city and sat on the east side of the city, and made a tent for himself there and sat under it in the shade to see what would happen to the city. 6The Master God commanded a tender shoot of gourd to spring up and it sprang up and came over Jonah and became shade over his head and comforted him in his grief so Jonah was exceedingly glad because of the gourd. 7But the next day at dawn, god commanded a worm, and it struck the gourd so that it withered. I Isaiah 17:10-11 8It came to pass when the sun arose the Master God commanded a sultry wind I Isaiah 17:13 and the sun beat on the head of Jonah that he was weary and wished that he might die and said, Master, you can take my life from me, for I am not better than my fathers. Jonah 4:5-89The Master God said to Jonah, Are you exceedingly grieved over the gourd? Jonah 4:9aJonah said, I am exceedingly grieved, even to death. Jonah 4:9b10The Master said to him, You have had pity on the gourd for which you did not labor nor did you make it grow; which sprung up in a night and withered in a night. 11Should I not have pity on Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than 120,000 children of men that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand, and also many cattle? Jonah 4:10-11 (Jonah 4:5-11 BRB)
