Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

Isaiah 29



Verses 1-24

Isaiah 29:1 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.

Isaiah 29:1Word Study on "Ariel" - Strong says the Greek word "Ariel" ( אֲרִיאֵל) (H 740) means, "lion of God," and is a compound of ( אֲרִי) (H 738), which means, "a lion," and ( אֵל) (410), which means, "strength, the Almighty God." Gesenius says it means, "lion of God, hearth of God, Ariel." The Enhanced Strong says it is used 11times in the Old Testament, being translated in the KJV as, "Ariel 6, altar 3, lion-like men 2."

Verse 22

Comments- Isaiah 29:22 to Isaiah 30:5 is an illustration of the sure hope that we have in Christ Jesus, and the despair of placing our hope in this world.
