Day 175 of 365 – June 24 - Chronological Bible

Isaiah 5:24,25

The Anger of the Lord

Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble,

and as dry grass sinks down in the flame,

so their root will be as rottenness,

and their blossom go up like dust;

for they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts,

and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people,

and he stretched out his hand against them and struck them,

and the mountains quaked;

and their corpses were as refuse in the midst of the streets.


For all this his anger has not turned away,

and his hand is stretched out still.


Isaiah 5:26-30

He will raise a signal for nations afar off,

and whistle for them from the ends of the earth;

and behold, quickly,

speedily they come!

None is weary, none stumbles,

none slumbers or sleeps,

not a waistband is loose,

not a sandal strap broken;

their arrows are sharp,

all their bows bent,

their horses’ hoofs seem like flint,

and their wheels like the whirlwind.

Their roaring is like a lion,

like young lions they roar;

they growl and seize their prey;

they carry it off, and none can rescue.

They will growl over it on that day,

like the growling of the sea.

And if one looks to the land,

behold, darkness and distress;

and the light is darkened by its clouds.


Isaiah 1:27-31

Zion shall be redeemed by justice,

and those in her who repent,

by righteousness.

But rebels and sinners shall be broken together,

and those who forsake the Lord shall be consumed.


For they shall be ashamed of the oaks

that you desired;

and you shall blush for the gardens

that you have chosen.

For you shall be like an oak whose leaf withers,

and like a garden without water.

And the strong shall become tinder,

and his work a spark,

and both of them shall burn together,

with none to quench them.


Isaiah 2:19-21

And people shall enter the caves of the rocks

and the holes of the ground,

from before the terror of the Lord,

and from the splendor of his majesty,

when he rises to terrify the earth.

In that day mankind will cast away

their idols of silver and their idols of gold,

which they made for themselves to worship,

to the moles and to the bats,

to enter the caverns of the rocks

and the clefts of the cliffs,

from before the terror of the Lord,

and from the splendor of his majesty,

when he rises to terrify the earth.


Isaiah 2:22 - 3:7

Stop regarding man

in whose nostrils is breath,

for of what account is he?


Judgment on Judah and Jerusalem

For behold, the Lord

God of hosts

is taking away from Jerusalem and from Judah

support and supply,

all support of bread, and all support of water;

the mighty man and the soldier,

the judge and the prophet,

the diviner and the elder,

the captain of fifty and the man of rank,

the counselor and the skillful magician

and the expert in charms.


"And I will make boys their princes,

and infants shall rule over them."


And the people will oppress one another,

every one his fellow and every one his neighbor;

the youth will be insolent to the elder,

and the despised to the honorable.


For a man will take hold of his brother

in the house of his father, saying:

“You have a cloak; you shall be our leader,

and this heap of ruins shall be under your rule”;

in that day he will speak out, saying:

“I will not be a healer;

in my house there is neither bread nor cloak;

you shall not make me leader of the people.”


Isaiah 1:18-20

“Come now, let us reason together,"

says the Lord:

"Though your sins are like scarlet,

they shall be as white as snow;

though they are red like crimson,

they shall become like wool.

If you are willing and obedient,

you shall eat the good of the land;

but if you refuse and rebel,

you shall be eaten by the sword;"

for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.


Isaiah 4:2-6

The Branch of the Lord Glorified

In that day the branch of the Lord shall be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land shall be the pride and honor of the survivors of Israel. And he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy, everyone who has been recorded for life in Jerusalem, when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and cleansed the bloodstains of Jerusalem from its midst by a spirit of judgment and by a spirit of burning. Then the Lord will create over the whole site of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, and smoke and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory there will be a canopy. There will be a booth for shade by day from the heat, and for a refuge and a shelter from the storm and rain.


Isaiah 2:1-5

The Mountain of the Lord

The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.


It shall come to pass in the latter days


that the mountain of the house of the Lord

shall be established

as the highest of the mountains,

and shall be lifted up above the hills;

and all the nations shall flow to it.


Many peoples shall come, and say:


“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,

to the house of the God of Jacob,

that he may teach us his ways

and that we may walk in his paths.”

For out of Zion shall go the law,

and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

He shall judge between the nations,

and shall decide disputes for many peoples;

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,

and their spears into pruning hooks;

nation shall not lift up sword against nation,

neither shall they learn war anymore.


O house of Jacob, come,

let us walk in the light of the Lord.


In Israel

2 Kings 15:19,20

Pul the king of Assyria came against the land, and Menahem gave Pul a thousand talents of silver, that he might help him to confirm his hold on the royal power. Menahem exacted the money from Israel, that is, from all the wealthy men, fifty shekels of silver from every man, to give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria turned back and did not stay there in the land.


2 Kings 15:21,22a (742 B.C.)

Now the rest of the deeds of Menahem and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? And Menahem slept with his fathers.

Uzziah's Death

Isaiah 6:1-13

Isaiah’s Vision of the Lord

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: 


“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;

the whole earth is full of his glory!”


And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.


And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”


Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”


Isaiah’s Commission from the Lord

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”


Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”


And he said, “Go, and say to this people:

“‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;

keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’

Make the heart of this people dull,

and their ears heavy,

and blind their eyes;

lest they see with their eyes,

and hear with their ears,

and understand with their hearts,

and turn and be healed.”


Then I said, “How long, O Lord?”

And he said:


“Until cities lie waste

without inhabitant,

and houses without people,

and the land is a desolate waste,

and the Lord removes people far away,

and the forsaken places are many

in the midst of the land.

And though a tenth remain in it,

it will be burned again,

like a terebinth or an oak,

whose stump remains when it is felled.”


2 Chronicles 27:3,4 (2 Kings 15:35b)

Jotham Reigns in Judah

He built the upper gate of the house of the Lord and did much building on the wall of Ophel. Moreover, he built cities in the hill country of Judah, and forts and towers on the wooded hills.


2 Chronicles 27:5,6

He fought with the king of the Ammonites and prevailed against them. And the Ammonites gave him that year 100 talents of silver, and 10,000 cors of wheat and 10,000 of barley. The Ammonites paid him the same amount in the second and the third years.


So Jotham became mighty, because he ordered his ways before the Lord his God.
