Isaiah 47-48

Isaiah 47-48

Chapter 47: Babylon and Chaldea shall be destroyed

Babylon is depicted as a degraded woman, naked and uncovered. The pride and arrogance of Babylon is rebuked. The stargazers and sorcerers of Babylon will be unable to help.

Chapter 48: The Lord reveals His purposes

The Lord rebukes Israel for their routine religious observance. The Lord made sure that he was revealed rather than concealed, but Israel did not see or hear. The Lord defers his anger for His name’s sake; He is the first and the last. The Lord wishes that his people had obeyed Him in the past. Exodus from Babylon joined with that from Egypt – the rock in the wilderness flowed with water.
