  1. The heading over this chapter in my Bible says distress and help, and that is exactly what is depicted in Isaiah 33 and is reflective of the character and nature of God. O Lord be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. That is the cry in verse 2. And He will do that for those whose hearts are inclined to Him. But He will also work justice and righteousness In Zion and be exalted for He dwells on high in verse 5. SO when the judgement comes, the response from God will be radically different depending on people’s orientation to Him. The sinners are terrified in Zion;trembling grips the godless in verse 14. But he who walks righteously and speaks what is right in verse 15 will dwell on the heights, and will have a refuge and bread and water in verse 16. And He will be gracious in how He disposes of His provisions and offers His presence. But it will be for those who seek Him. It is for those who see God as judge, as lawgiver, as king who will be saved. And it is consistent with God’s nature to condone and support what is right and be hard on falsehood and disobedience. And that is why we have this picture of distress and help in this chapter.
