Big rap for Israel and/or God’s people generally. He’s speaking of their abandonment by God, their time of exile, how it will be temporary.
Like a husband who is briefly angry with his wife, the larger, stronger relationship will prevail.
He talks of loving and teaching the children/generations. There are descriptions of architecture built with precious stones that sound a bit like the holy city in revelation.
There is talk of safety and military protection, something that would have been top of mind to those in Isaiah’s time.
It’s a pile on of God’s care for and love for his people.
I start back in the full swing of work today after leave, my time of complete leisure and liberty at an end. I’ve got a big year helping church to move and much complexity at work to stay on top of.
I love my family and I want good things for all of them. I can only face it by relying on God’s promise of love and compassion for his people.
