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

Isaiah 23 (ESV)

The oracle concerning Tyre.

Wail, O ships of Tarshish,
    for Tyre is laid waste, without house or harbor!
From the land of Cyprus
    it is revealed to them.
Be still, O inhabitants of the coast;
    the merchants of Sidon, who cross the sea, have filled you.
And on many waters
your revenue was the grain of Shihor,
    the harvest of the Nile;
    you were the merchant of the nations.
Be ashamed, O Sidon, for the sea has spoken,
    the stronghold of the sea, saying:
“I have neither labored nor given birth,

  1. 15In that day Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years, like the days of one king. At the end of seventy years, it will happen to Tyre as in the song of the prostitute:
    16 “Take a harp;
    go about the city,
    O forgotten prostitute!
    Make sweet melody;
    sing many songs,
    that you may be remembered.”

  2. kind of makes me think about the current situation in world commerce, finances, etc. Pride, nonrecognition of God. Psalm 24:1 says “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to Him.” We easily forget, especially when we are successful and things are going well. He is ever in charge.

  3. Isaiah is certainly making the rounds of describing God’s judgement on these nations that surrounded Israel, all with certain characteristics that made them prideful and many of them more powerful than Israel. But the God of Israel will humble and destroy them. He will take away the very things that they would cling to as significant. That is how powerful and sovereign He is. All nations are under His control. And yet a redemptive message for Tyre in the same vein as Babylon. How great is our God that he always creates pathways of recovery and restored fellowship for those that will incline their will to His.
