Isaiah 29



Verses 1-24


The Second Woe Against Ariel and the Third Woe

1. The fall of Ariel (Jerusalem) predicted (Isaiah 29:1-4) 2. Their enemies dealt with by Jehovah (Isaiah 29:5-8) 3. The people’s condition: Blinded and religious formalists (Isaiah 29:9-14) 4. The third woe (Isaiah 29:15-16) 5. In that Day: joy and blessing for the meek and iniquity punished (Isaiah 29:17-24) Ariel means “the lion of God.” It is one of the names of Jerusalem. A great siege of Jerusalem is predicted. Neither Sennacherib’s invasion nor the siege of Jerusalem by the Romans accomplished this prophecy. At the end of this age the King of the North (Assyrian) and confederate nations with him will besiege Jerusalem. Of this the chapter gives us the history. Sennacherib’s army is a type of the King of the North. Read again chapter 10 and study with this chapter before us Zechariah 12:1-14; Zechariah 13:1-9;Zechariah 14:1-21;Micah 4:11; Micah 5:4-15, and especially the last part of Daniel 11:1-45. After that last siege of Jerusalem “that day” will bring blessing for the faithful and punishment for the wicked.
