 Please click on the linkage to the Scripture and read the verses then we will summarize what we have learned.

Isaiah 32:1-20   Isaiah calls on the people to look for the Messiah, the coming King who will “reign in righteousness” (v. 1).  But before this King arrives, the people must turn from their sinful and complacent ways.

Isaiah 33:1-24 The Lord alone is the hope and salvation of His people:  “The LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king: He will save us” (v. 22)  see Ps. 77:1-2

Isaiah 34:1-17  Isaiah returns to the theme of God’s judgement against foreign nations (13:1-23:18).

Isaiah 35:1-10  This chapter portrays a future time when God will redeem and restore His people.  They will return to Jerusalem (“Zion,” v. 10) with songs of joy and gladness.

Isaiah 36:1-22  King Sennacherib of Assyria invades Judah and captures several walled cities.  He sends word to King Hezekiah of Judah that Assyria will attack with a superior force unless Judah surrenders.

Isaiah 37:1-38   King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah pray to the Lord , asking Him to save Judah from the Assyrian threat.  God miraculously delivers the nation by destroying 185,000 warriors in Sennacherib’s army (2 Kings 18:13 through 2 Kings 19:37).

Isaiah 38:1-22  King Hezekiah of Judah is seriously ill, and Isaiah tells him he will die.  But Hezekiah prays humbly to the Lord, who graciously extends the king’s life for fifteen more years (2 Kings 20:1-11).

Isaiah 39:1-8  Hezekiah foolishly shows off his royal riches to a messenger from the king of Babylon.  Isaiah predicts that the Babylonians will defeat the nation of Judah and carry off these treasures at some future time (2 Kings 20:12-19).
