Isaiah 36-40

The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)

Isaiah 36 - No mention of any women.

37:22 - "This is the word that the Lord has spoken concerning [the king of Assyria]: She despises you, she scorns you - virgin daughter of Zion, she tosses her head - behind your back, daughter Jerusalem."

Isaiah 38 - No mention of any women.

Isaiah 39 - No mention of any women.

40:2 - "Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that she served her term, that her penalty is paid, that she has received from the Lord's hand double for all her sins."
40:11 - "He will feed his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms, and carry them in his bosom, and gently lead the mother sheep."

My Comments

Why does Jerusalem have to deal with double the punishment for her sins? Why is God being such a dick to this city which I thought was some sort of holy place for him? Yes, please rush to comfort poor Jerusalem for suffering at the hands of her God and be sure to treat her like the damaged, delicate flower that she is.

Nothing much else here that I haven't ranted about ad nauseam already.

Friday: Isaiah 41-45


  1. More varied rants will come with variety of content. Isaiah isn't giving you much to work with in volume or diverseness.

  2. Lol, I'm starting to feel that way about most of the Bible in general. It's all just kind of wash, rinse, repeat bullshit. :P
