Isaiah 31* The sin and folly of seeking help from Egypt. (1-5) God's carefor Jerusalem. (6-9)1-5 God will oppose the help sought from workers of iniquity.Sinners may be convicted of folly by plain and self-evidenttruths, which they cannot deny, but will not believe. There isno escaping the judgments of God; and evil pursues sinners. TheLord of hosts will come down to fight for Mount Zion. The Lionof the tribe of Judah will appear for the defence of his church.And as birds hovering over their young ones to protect them,with such compassion and affection will the Lord of hosts defendJerusalem. He will so defend it, as to secure its safety. 6-9 They have been backsliding children, yet children; let themreturn, and their backslidings shall be healed, though they havesunk deep into misery, and cannot easily recover. Many make anidol of their silver and gold, and by the love of that are drawnfrom God; but those who turn to God, will be ready to part withit. Then, when they have cast away their idols, shall theAssyrian fall by the sword of an angel, who strikes morestrongly than a mighty man, yet more secretly than a mean man.God can make the stoutest heart to tremble. But if we keep upthe fire of holy love and devotion in our hearts and houses, wemay depend upon God to protect us and them.
