Septuagint Isaiah 30:20-21: Devotional Journal 66

A very favorite quotation from Isaiah tells a different story in the Septuagint. See Isaiah 30:20-21 from a quite different angle. The plot of Septuagint Isaiah 30:19-26 relates the spiritual journey of new believers. Following lies from birth, a person reaches the …bottom of their pit.

God judges and punishes his people, yes. But, he also judges and punishes “as many as have fought against Ariel, and all they that war against Jerusalem” (Isaiah 29:7). … Continue readingAriel and Her Enemies: Isaiah Devotional Journal 62

Switchback–Blessing Disappears: Isaiah Devotional Journal 60

Isaiah grants no blessing to rebellious Israel.  … Continue readingSwitchback–Blessing Disappears: Isaiah Devotional Journal 60
