The furniture (themes) in every one room are various, however the decor (structure) of the home combines to lend to the e-book an total harmony of objective. The structure of the publication as a complete has detailed beneficial properties that come with phrases of judgment in addition to phrases of promise asserting a brand new day dawning. during this new day dawning, there are powerful components of a messianic hope.

The prophet draws attention to the causes of the exile. On the one hand these causes include a combination of wrong worship and general disregard of the Lord’s deeds among the people. On the other hand they include the continuing practice of social injustice, which violates the covenant. Drawing attention to the causes of the exile serves to emphasize the theme of judgment as purification. 52 Isaiah 5:1-30 53 OUTLINE The Vineyard, 5:1-7 5:1-2 Song of the Vineyard 5:3-4 Appraising the Vineyard’s Harvest 5:5-7 Removing the Vineyard’s Defenses Calamity, 5:8-25 5:8-10 Woe!
The vision looks beyond Judah and Jerusalem, across no man’s land to Israel (the Northern Kingdom), across international borders to neighboring states, and beyond these states to the power centers of the Nile and the Euphrates (in the introduction see “Light to the Nations”). But it returns again and again to Judah and Jerusalem as sign and symbol of God’s activity and to the response of God’s people to that activity. The first chapter presents a picture of the Lord’s children in full-scale rebellion.
The first part ends with an appeal to the house of Jacob to come with the nations to the Lord’s mountain (2:5; cf. Seitz: 38-39). The second part begins with an address to the Lord asserting that he has abandoned the house of Jacob (2:6). The two parts taken together form the bipolar message of the chapter. The word of the LORD, on the one hand, inspires nations and peoples to seek the Lord’s instruction. The house of Jacob receives a call to do the same (2:1-5). The day of the LORD, on the other hand, goes out as a warning that human pride and arrogance stand in the way of God’s purpose for all of humankind (2:6-22).
