Discussion for Isaiah 60

  • Sr
    This chapter is saying God will have mercy on Jacob (lost sheep). He will yet choose israel and set them in their own land. Strangers are Gentiles that are not israelites born of the seed Jacob. Verse 12 says nations will serve us or perish if they choose not to serve. Righteousness will once again be established with lost sheep (12 tribes) to enlighten the world.
  • Pastor Chinyere E.
