 The Proud Will Be Destroyed

O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD. Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.


Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots: Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made: And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not. Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.


The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,


And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.


And the idols he shall utterly abolish. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of? (Isaiah 2:5-22 kjv)

The Book of ISAIAH

The theme of this hook is expressed in the meaning of the name Isaiah, "the Lord saves" or "the Lord is Savior." The Book of Isaiah contains more prophecies about the Messiah than any other book in the Old Testament. In fact, the plan of salvation is so comprehensively revealed in Isaiah's work that Augustine called it the fifth Gospel, and others have referred to it as "the Bible in miniature."
Some have attempted to discredit the authenticity of the prophecies of Isaiah by suggesting that Isaiah was not the author of them all. The historical view as to the authorship of this book, however, has consistently held that Isaiah composed the entire book. This view is supported by the fact that each time a portion which the liberals dispute is quoted in the New Testament, Isaiah is named as the author.

Traditionally, Isaiah is thought to have been the son of a prince of Judah. He certainly did not feel uncomfortable in the presence of kings (Is. 7:3 -12; 37:21), and the richness of his vocabulary suggests that he was a man of culture and education. He ministered for over forty years (740 -697 B.C.) during the reigns of four Judean kings (Is. 1:1): Uzziah, Jotham. Ahaz, and Hezekiah.
While Uzziah and Jotham were in power there was relative peace and prosperity, but Isaiah's writings, as well as those of the contemporary prophets Hosea, Amos, and Micah, reveal that the people were spiritually destitute (Hos. 4:1, 2, 6 -8; Amos 2:6 -8; Mic. 1:5; 3:1 -11). When King Ahaz came to power, Syria besieged Jerusalem (2 Kgs. 16:5).
Isaiah was given the task of urging him to trust the Lord for a favorable outcome, but Ahaz called on Assyria for help instead (1 Kgs. 16:7). Hezekiah made great strides in bringing about religious reform in the nation and was well acquainted with Isaiah (2 Kgs. 18:1-7:19:1, 2; 20:1 -11). It is not known precisely when Isaiah died, but according to tradition, he was sawed in half with a timber saw during the reign of King Manasseh (cf. Heb.11:37).  [Source for Introduction of chapter: Hebrew Greek Key Study Bible KJV edited by Spiros Zodhiates, Th.D. AMG Publishers, Chattanooga, TN 37422]
