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

Isaiah 47 (ESV)

Come down and sit in the dust,
    O virgin daughter of Babylon;
sit on the ground without a throne,
    O daughter of the Chaldeans!
For you shall no more be called
    tender and delicate.
Take the millstones and grind flour,
    put off your veil,
strip off your robe, uncover your legs,
    pass through the rivers.
Your nakedness shall be uncovered,
    and your disgrace shall be seen.
I will take vengeance,
    and I will spare no one.
Our Redeemer—the Lord of hosts is his name—
    is the Holy One of Israel..

  1. Even though the Babylonians will be used by God to discipline Judah, they too will be judged and humbled by Him. No one is beyond His authority. The chapter certainly points to the pride of the Babylonians. The things that they depended on that brought them their stature in the world and the things that came from it as well. But all will be brought to naught because of their pride in it and because of their mistreatment of the Jews. When you are being used by God, there is an expectation that you would be following His guidelines of action and behavior. And when you don’t, God will then defend His people against you. A lesson the Babylonians will learn and we should learn it as well.
