Isaiah 29

Isaiah 29  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 9
The following chapters, through 34, describe the circumstances of the people who have returned and are dwelling safely but under the threat of the Assyrian for the last time. The tension increases until the climax in chapter 34. It might be profitable to notice especially that as chapter 28 is a victory for the Assyrian, chapter 29 is his crushing defeat. The whole host is scattered. Ariel (the lion of God) is now aroused under its Deliverer, and the result is victory. "In a very little while Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, the blind shall see, they that erred in spirit shall come to understanding," etc. Thus the millennial day.
