Isaiah 29 – God Against Affliction

Isaiah 29 starts with a prophecy against Jerusalem, here called “Ariel,” Hebrew for “lion of God.” Isaiah predicts siege by the city’s enemies (3) and punishment of natural disasters from God himself (6). I won’t dwell too much on that passage, except to encourage you to read it for yourself–half the reason I write these posts is to encourage you to read the Bible more. The other half is to encourage me to read the Bible more.
