Isaiah

I recently read Isaiah as my bedtime reading. Although it was stormy and often quite fierce, I found it strangely very comforting reading. Best bedtime reading I’ve had in a long time.

I got the impression of an overall story of the holy city Jerusalem as a fallen woman who found her way back to righteousness. I liked that story and found myself identifying with the city (or the woman).

1.21
Alas she has become a harlot,
The faithful city
That was filled with justoce,
Where righteousness dwelt —
But now murderers.

33.6
Faithfulness to your charge was her wealth,
Wisdom and devotion her triumph,
Reverence for the LORD — that was her treasure.

66.10
Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her,
All you who love her!
Join in her jubilation,
All you who mourned over her!

I loved reading it. I haven’t got much time to write nowadays :( . I’m looking forward to reading the next book, Jeremiah.

In case I come back and write up properly, below are my tweets while I was reading (sorry this is not very kind to the reader):
