Commentary: The Israelites in Judah were experiencing a time of peace and prosperity, which led them to falsely conclude that the Lord was pleased with them. Isaiah was warning them that if they did not change their ways, the Lord would punish them for their wickedness. They could not rely upon themselves or man-made objects, they must rely upon the Lord. Only those who follow the Lord will be blessed come judgement day. In chapter 6, the reader is given a recount of Isaiah’s calling by the Lord.
Focus Verses:3:8-11 Jerusalem and Judah had become nations of things (objects), rather than worshipping the Lord. They flaunted their sins for all to see, yet there was still the righteous, those that would be spared from disaster. Are you a person of things or a person for Christ? Do you flaunt your sins? Do you examine your life for all sins?
