This verse, if inflected correctly, makes perfect sense. However, if ‘reasoned’ out, it easy to come to very incorrect conclusions….
GEN 6:6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
God created man. Now here’s the pivotal ‘key’. He loved man. He was going to send his son to die on man’s behalf, so as to save ...
The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth. How can a father regret begetting his own children?
Polyhat has given a wonderful insight into the word usually translated as "regretted" or "repented".
Further, this whole verse gives us better insight into Jehovah God's feelings towards us, his children. The topic "...
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it
grieved him at his heart. (Genesis 6:6, KJV)
וַיִּנָּ֣חֶם יְהוָ֔ה כִּֽי־עָשָׂ֥ה אֶת־הָֽאָדָ֖ם בָּאָ֑רֶץ
וַיִּתְעַצֵּ֖ב אֶל־לִבֹּֽו׃ (TR)
This Hebrew word וַיִּנָּ֣חֶם (way·yin·nā·ḥem / H5162) is a difficult one to properly translate. It is in the Hebrew Niphal/Nifal form, which happens to ...
Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.
But what about the word "our" in verse 4? Isaiah was speaking to the people of Israel, right?
Right, that's the narrow local context. Let's see the broader context, Isaiah 53:l
1 Who has believed our message
Is Ephesians 2:17 an allusion to Isaiah 57:19?
Yes, Isaiah is famous for his Messianic connections. This is another one.
ESV Isaiah 57:
19 creating the fruit of the lips. Peace, peace, to the far and to the near,” says the Lord, “and I will heal him.
17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who ...
Does the Tanakh claim Elohim YHVH has a supernatural anointed son who is both God over all (Romans 9:5) & has a Father in heaven (Matthew 6:9)?
So said YHVH, ( כֹּֽה־אָמַ֨ר יְהֹוָ֧ה )
the King of Yisrael ( מֶֽלֶךְ־יִשְׂרָאֵ֛ל )
and his-Redeemer ( וְגֹֽאֲל֖וֹ )
Notice : YHVH is declaring Himself only as both King & Redeemer of Yisrael....
It's likely that Jesus ate fish in Luke 9:
16 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people.
It's consistent with Matthew 11:
The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax ...
There is a problem in understanding about the term "Land".
Actually when the Bible speaks about a nation, land, it's about the people or the group of people.
Isaiah 62:5 speaks about God rejoicing over His sons.
Because when the people follow His commandments and do His will, then He will be glad.
But, thinking that the sons will marry the land is ...
A footnote more than an answer - Some answers, example Tony’s, have already outlined a fulfilment of this passage. But there is more to understand.
You say … “Im not sure whether this prophecy has been fulfilled or not.” - and there is, as said, some. But, you need to understand what prophecy means, not in our western understanding, but in Hebraic terms - ...
Has Isaiah 4:1 been fulfilled?
With regard to when this chapter and verse was/is to be fulfilled, one can only really argue for the first destruction of Jerusalem and it's temple, by way of the Babylonians led by King Nebuchadnezzar, basically, as there was to be a restoration thereafter. Whereas there was no qualitative restoration thereafter after the ...
Yes. I think the spiritual fulfillment is about the 7 churches in Revelation. A woman generally symbolizes a church, like the bride of Christ being the church.
Bread is symbolic of like...doctrine, knowledge,beliefs. ( So breaking bread depicts opening up knowledge so that you can consume, digest, take it into you)
Clothing depicts what you're covered by.....
Has Isaiah 4:1 been fulfilled?
Has this prophecy been fulfilled? Yes, with the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians. Wars obviously created a severe shortage of marriageable men, so women took hold of a man to have his name and so be married, being married took their reproach away.
A husband legally had to provide food, clothing, and shelter for his wives, ...
4 But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.
he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will
These passages speak on the concept of people being ...
Has Isaiah 4:1 been fulfilled?
in the days of Vespasian and Titus, and in the time of their wars with the Jews; in which were made such slaughters of men, that there were not enough left for every woman to have a husband; and therefore "seven", or a great many, sue to one man to marry them, contrary to their natural bashfulness.
That Day is reference to The Lords Day.
Revelation 20. It has not come to pass yet. When the 7th Trump sets off.
Isaiah 4:1 "And in the day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, "We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach."
Isaiah 4:2 "In that day shall
Heres some notes.
Thou art our Father. Reference to Pentateuch (Deuteronomy 32:6 ).
Father. A rare word in this connection. Compare Isaiah 64:8 .
Redeemer. See note on Isaiah 60:16 .
You are conflating ‘man’ with ‘nations’….
EXODUS 4:22 Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Israel is My son, My firstborn.
When Isaiah says … “For You are our father”, he is speaking on behalf of the people [nation]. A prophet speaks to ‘the people’ on behalf of God and to God on behalf of ‘the people’.
GAL 4:6 And because you are sons [snip]
Isaiah 8:4 "For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, 'My father, and my mother,' the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away."
It means before this son of Isaiah gets big enough to even say a word (mother and father), the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be gone.
Remember that Damascus was the ...
I agree with Dottard's answer. Here I'll supplement a little.
1 I will sing for my beloved a song of his vineyard:
My beloved had a vineyard
on a very fertile hill.
In terms of genre, Isaiah 5:1-7 is a song. It is poetry filled with emotive words.
On the other hand, Jesus was speaking prose in
6Then he told this parable: “A man had a ...
3 And I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son. Then the LORD said to me, “Call his name Maher-shalal-hash-baz; 4for before the boy knows how to cry ‘My father’ or ‘My mother,’ the wealth of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be carried away before the king of Assyria.”
Strong's 4122: Maher-shalal-hash-baz -- 'swift (is) ...
First, what "the image of God" means in Genesis 1:26 -
The Bible states that God made mankind in his image (Genesis 1:26-30). No other creation of his was so made. It is not said of any of the animals, birds or fish that God created. It is not said of angels that were created. It is not said of the Son of God who was never created. So, what does it ...
There are too many differences for Luke 13 to be alluding to Isa 5. Note the following:
the vineyard in Luke 13 is incidental - the fig tree represents Israel while in Isa 5, the vineyard represents Israel
the fig tree produced no fruit while the vineyard did produce fruit but it was our
the owner want to cut down the fig tree but for the vineyard the ...
This is one of the many difference between the two visions of Isaiah and Ezekiel:
Six wings per seraph
Four wings per cherub
Seraphim fly about generally
Cherubim exclusive to the throne of the LORD
Seraphim are unnumbered (possibly very many?)
Cherubim are only four in number
Seraphim are not described except for ...
Isa 6:6 NKJV
Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar.
This was a live coal from the altar.
On the other hand, (NIV) Ezekiel 10:
1 I looked, and I saw the likeness of a throne of lapis lazuli above the vault that was over the heads of the cherubim. 2The Lord said to the man ...
The phrase translated as 'cleared it of stones' is not the Hebrew noun, 'even, which means stone, but the verb yesaqqelen, which comes from the verb saqal, meaning, to stone someone. E.g. to kill them by throwing rocks at them.
Here, the reverse is meant, e.g. to make the land fertile by removing the rocks in the soil. These rocks (large rocks) would then be ...
Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations.
Removing the stones is a routine for clearing the space. It has no special significance.
Each element in a parable, being a short story, is indispensable to the plot, but may or may not have metaphoric significance. Let us treat these two aspects separately.
Plot Element: Stones
In the parable of Isa 5, the clearing of stones had a dual function:
To remove impediments to growing plants in unhindered soil
To use the stones to create a wall ...
Not directly, but loosely, perhaps. Allusions are made when an earlier text contains an isolated, distinct motif that a later text wants to remind its audience of. This is not what is going on here, because gaining and losing one's “name” is a common idea in the biblical text.
In Hebrew, the word we translate “name” actually has a broader meaning. It often ...
Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?
Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?
With whom took he counsel, and who ...
As has been observed, these questions are entirely rhetorical, and the literal answers are not the actual point of the text. The intent of the rhetoric is to magnify YHWH and demonstrate his power.
The flow of Isaiah 40
Let us consider Isaiah 40 as a larger unit:
v1-5: Jerusalem is weary and exhausted. Isaiah is called to speak to them of restoration
