Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

Isaiah 10 (ESV)

Woe to those who decree iniquitous decrees,
    and the writers who keep writing oppression,
to turn aside the needy from justice
    and to rob the poor of my people of their right,
that widows may be their spoil,
    and that they may make the fatherless their prey!
What will you do on the day of punishment,
    in the ruin that will come from afar?
To whom will you flee for help,
    and where will you leave your wealth?
Nothing remains but to crouch among the prisoners

  1. There are four sections of this chapter. The first shows what God cares about and what the leaders of Israel are not doing. God cares about justice, about the poor, the widow, the orphan. He calls governments to protect them not oppress them, but I Israel has not done that. It is the result of them forsaking their relationship with God. The second section speaks of God using Assyria to discipline Israel. He is angered by their worshipping of idols, both Israel and Judah. The Assyrians will overrun Israel but it is to be a warning to Judah. The third section describes how after God uses Assyrian as a tool of judgement, He will destroy them as well because of the pride in their hearts. They have been haughty in the defeat of their enemies and history shows they were particularly violent and brutal as well. But God is greater and will deal with them in power. The fourth section deals with the remnant of Israel that will remain faithful to God and He will provide for them after Assyria is used to correct Israel. But those true to God don’t need to fear Assyria because His judgement is temporary but His covenant with His people is forever. We can always look to God in times of hardship and find consolation in His forgiveness, love and provision.
