First, What was the situation in Galatia at that time? Once that is established, the reason for the OT quote should become clearer.
On Paul and Barnabas’s first missionary tour, they had established congregations of new believers in Antioch of Pisidia, Iconium, Lystra, and Derbe (Acts 13:13-14:28). Then arose an increasingly heated debate amongst Jewish ...
The prophecy of Isa 21:1-10 is about the fall of the Babylonian kingdom to the Medes and Persians (Dan 5:28). The OP quotes an obscure version that poorly represents the Hebrew. Note the comments from the Cambridge commentary that better translates the Hebrew of V7:
The verse reads: And if he see a troop, horsemen in pairs (1 Kings 9:25), a troop of asses,...
Isaiah 21:7-9 relates to Who?
The war chariot of asses and that of camels fittingly represent the two powers, Media and Persia, that will unite to launch this attack. The ancient Persians besides using horses and elephants in their army, they also used Asses and Camels in their cavalry
Isaiah 21:7-9 relates to Who? To the Medes and the Persians
The whole verse of Isa 29:9 reads:
Therefore Jacob’s guilt will be atoned for, and the full fruit of the
removal of his sin will be this: When he makes all the altar stones
like crushed bits of chalk, no Asherah poles or incense altars will
The "full fruit" of the removal of Jacob's sin is:
the altar stones will become like ...
Matthew 1:23 actually gives you the interpretation without any use of a dictionary or commentary. And the beautiful thing about this commentary is it comes from the holy scriptures themselves. Which is one of the first rules for Bible study, to let scripture interpret scripture. In addition, you will find this referring to Jesus as the fulfillment of this ...
This is now NIV shows the parallelism structure in context:
If only there were **briers and thorns** confronting me!
I would march against them in battle;
I would set them all on fire.
Or else let **them** come to me for refuge;
let them make peace with me,
yes, let them make peace with me.”
Briars and thorns are symbols of the unrighteous ...
This is a fairly complicated question.
In the prophecies of Isaiah, we do not have much knowledge about this time period. Thus, I will focus on Ezekiel.
To begin, in Ezekiel chapter 33 it says "וּבְאָמְרִ֥י לָֽרָשָׁ֖ע מ֣וֹת תָּמ֑וּת וְשָׁב֙ מֵֽחַטָּאת֔וֹ וְעָשָׂ֥ה מִשְׁפָּ֖ט וּצְדָקָֽה׃ חֲבֹ֨ל יָשִׁ֤יב רָשָׁע֙ גְּזֵלָ֣ה יְשַׁלֵּ֔ם בְּחֻקּ֤וֹת ...
The short answer is: Ezekeiel's prophecy was not fulfilled, Isaiah's prophecy maybe.
Ezekiel prophesied against Tyre and said it would be completely destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, but this actually never happened, after 13 years of siege the babylonians gave up unable to conquer Tyre by military means. Actually Ezekiel himself gives a stunning admission in his ...
Were the prophecies in Isaiah and Ezekiel about Tyre actually fulfilled?
The answer is "Yes"
The Chaldeans laid siege of the mainland city, the siege lasted 13 years (Wikipedia). The island part of the city about 0.5 miles/0.8 km from the mainland escaped the siege and was never captured by the Babylonians. The bulk of the wealth of the city was ...
