June 12, 2015

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapters mentioned in the heading during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for several chapters creates the opportunity to revisit them and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. 11:3 He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears.

    Jesus is not like us. We often judge by what we see and hear but he decides by judging the motives of people's hearts. God is more interested in our motives then our actions.

  3. 12:4-5 Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.

    Israel's role was to make the Lord's name known among the nations. To be a witness to how good it is to live under God's government. They failed, but how are we doing?

  5. 13:11 I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless.

    God doesn't punish for the thrill of it but to teach people they are not as clever as they think. God moves against arrogance and pride because they are such a lie and so unfounded. It is actually God who blesses people but they think it is their own doing.

  7. 14:14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.”

    (From Constable's Commentary) "It is a strange paradox that nothing makes a being less like God than the urge to be his equal, for he who was God stepped down from the throne of his glory to display to the wondering eyes of men the humility of God (Phil 2:5-8)."

    To make oneself like God actually means to be humble.

  9. 15:5 My heart cries out over Moab; her fugitives flee as far as Zoar, as far as Eglath Shelishiyah. They go up the hill to Luhith, weeping as they go; on the road to Horonaim they lament their destruction.

    "My heart" – Isaiah is expressing God's heart as well as his own. Although God sends destruction as a judgment for Moab's pride (16:6) he also mourns for them.
