Isaiah 18

Verses 1-7

This is the second of the prophet's soliloquies, and is of the nature of a proclamation to certain ambassadors who are charged to return to their people and to wait for Jehovah. This charge is delivered because Jehovah has declared that He is waiting, watching, and preparing, that at the right moment He will act in judgment, and the issue will be the subjugation of the opposing peoples.
