Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:CHAPTER 30
The Fourth Woe Against Alliance With Egypt
1. The alliance and its failure (Isaiah 30:1-7) 2. The written table against the rebellious people (Isaiah 30:8-14) 3. Jehovah’s word of encouragement (Isaiah 30:15-17) 4. The nation blest and restored (Isaiah 30:18-21) 5. Idolatry ceases and the land restored (Isaiah 30:22-26) 6. The accomplishment by the coming of the Lord (Isaiah 30:27-33)While this chapter had a significance, like all these prophetic utterances, for the people in Isaiah’s day, its complete revelation can only be grasped in the light of what is yet to come. The Jewish people have never yet possessed the blessings of Isaiah 30:18-20. These will come as a result of the second coming of Christ. See Isaiah 30:30.
