Isaiah 4

Verses 1-6

In all human history there has been a close connection between corrupt rulers and frivolous and polluted womanhood. Fierce is the prophet's denunciation of such. Their wantonness and their luxury are to be ended. They are to be visited by physical diction, and the sweeping out of all the things associated with their corrupt and luxurious life, and by the death of men.

The appeal ends with another description of the days following the judgment. They are to be characterized by material prosperity issuing from moral purity, and by the mighty protection of Jehovah.
