ISAIAH CHAPTER 12
TABLE OF CONTENTS
The purpose of the observation stage is to maintain focus on the text at hand within the normative rules of language, context and logic . .This limits the observer to the content offered by the book of Isaiah. This will serve to avoid going on unnecessary tangents elsewhere; and more importantly, it will provide the framework for a proper and objective comparison with passages located elsewhere in Scripture.
Remember that something elsewhere may be true, but in the text at hand it may not be in view.
Note that Isaiah chapter 12 continues the context of chapter of the Day of the LORD when He gathers all His people to the promised land:
****** EXCERPT FROM ISAIAH CHAPTER 11 ******
Or skip to the beginning of chapter 12:
(11:10-16) AND IN THAT DAY THE ROOT OF JESSE WILL STAND AS A BANNER, WHO WILL DRAW ALL THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD TO HIMSELF - THEY WILL SEEK HIM IN THE SENSE OF COMING TO A KNOWLEDGE AND TRUST IN HIM. HE WILL SIT ON THE THRONE IN THE TEMPLE. AND THE LORD SHALL A SECOND TIME RECOVER THE REMNANT OF HIS PEOPLE FROM EVERYWHERE ON EARTH. AND JUDAH WILL LIVE IN HARMONY WITH ISRAEL. TOGETHER THEY WILL DESTROY THEIR ENEMIES. THE LORD WILL DRY UP THE GULF OF SUEZ WITH A WIND AND REDUCE THE EUPHRATES RIVER INTO SEVEN SHALLOW STREAMS TO CREATE A HIGHWAY FOR HIS PEOPLE TO COME TO HIM
****** END OF EXCERPT FROM ISAIAH CHAPTER 11 ******
