    Judge the fatherless - Do justice to him - vindicate his cause. Take not advantage of his weak and helpless, condition - his ignorance and want of experience. This charge was particularly necessary on account of the facilities which the guardians of orphans have to defraud or oppress, without danger of detection or punishment. Orphans have no experience. Parents are their natural protectors; and therefore God especially charged on their guardians to befriend and do justice to them; De 24:17 : 'Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor the fatherless, nor take the widow's raiment to pledge.

    John,

    Where it says Judge the fatherless in Isaiah 1:17, Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible explains it this way; "do justice to them who have none to take care of them, and defend them:"

    Hi Zori.

    There's those who believe the book of Isaiah have 2 authors because of the contrasting styles between the 1st half of the book and the 2nd half. However Isaiah wrote both halves of the book of Isaiah.

    Do a careful research on John 12:37-41. and you will find Jesus contributing both half of the book to Isaiah by quoting from each half of the book.

    I hope this helps.

    God bless.

    Zori:

    The Spirit of Christ (the Father) revealed to Isaiah what the spirit of Christ (the Father) wanted Isaiah to put to paper.

    2 Peter 1:20 For the prophecy came not of old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake AS THEY WERE MOVED by the Holy Ghost (the spirit of Christ)(the Father is the spirit of Christ).

    I was once a King but now just a Peasant King. A King from the beginning but now that Evil has corrupted our Great Nation everything once great is being washed away like it's never was here in the first place. For I seek truth, for sake my soul into the Heavens.

    Son of the Gods from the beginning of time.

    Hello Isa. I wouldn't say that the Bible is a mnemonic (technical?) way to remember. It gives us a complete account of the times in history from the creation of the worlds to the 1st Century AD, as it applies to the Majesty, Wisdom & Power of God and His intervention in the lives of His creation. We can store in our minds a brief reason of each of the Bible Books & even maybe place them in chronological order, so as to be able to 'walk through the Bible', but the Bible itself doesn't assist our memory. The Holy Spirit Who moved amongst the writers of those Bible Books to bring God's Word to us, can also move in our hearts & minds to help us retain knowledge of His Word & bring it to our memories as we have need.

    The Bible is a mnemotechnical way to remember our History.

    Amen Carleton.

    Thanks.

    Somehow Iet that get by me.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Hi, I am thinking about this too as of course te thought brought out is not in the Bible, but what remains, God's Word is true. Adam and Eve learned this in their error. Likewise now knowing that God's Word is true, they were promised a future by faith which is hope. The same understanding conveys the sinner to faith and repentance in the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ. Why would Adam and Eve not believe the Promise and live towards it in faith? They surely did and likewise any sinner can know that God's Word is true and be conveyed to Calvary where they can choose to surrender their works to finished work of Jesus Christ which is Hope eternal.

    I was told that Adam and Eve tried numerous times to commit suicide after being thrust from the Garden of Eden. Is this true? Can you direct me to scriptures documenting this?

    THOUGH YOUR SINS BE AS SCARLET (hymn title)

    Words: Fanny Crosby, 1887

    "Though your sins be as scarlet,

    They shall be as white as snow;

    Though your sins be as scarlet,

    They shall be as white as snow;

    Though they be red like crimson,

    They shall be as wool!"

    "Though your sins be as scarlet,

    Though your sins be as scarlet,

    They shall be as white as snow,

    They shall be as white as snow."

    Isaiah 1.18

    Lord, my sins they are many, like the sands of the sea,

    But Thy blood, O my Savior, is sufficient for me;

    For Thy promise is written, in bright letters that glow,

    "Though your sins be as scarlet, I will make them like snow."

    IS MY NAME WRITTEN THERE? (hymn title)

    "in the Lamb's book of life." Revelation 21:27

    Thank you very much, Mishael & Chris. Sometime later, I too realized that I had come to the END of the chapters!! The only option was to proceed to the next chapter.

    I happen to have a hardback version of NRSV: if I had only gone to another room to check it, I would have realized my mistake!

    When you first enter the website you will first see TWO search boxes.

    Pick the top one if you want to search a subject like "water baptism" or anything else that interests you.

    Use the 2nd search box to read a particular book and chapters. You will see above the website Bible these symbols: < or >, to go to the next page or to go backwards.

    Hope this helps you.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    The Books of Isaiah (& Joshua, which you enquired about) have only those verses in the chapters you mentioned. After the last verse you see, you will need to continue to read the Book in the following chapter(s). Are you asking this because you have seen more verses associated with these chapters? Unless you have manuscripts pre-12th Century, it would be impossible to get a Bible without chapters & verses.
  • Sid K on Isaiah 1
    I opened the book of Isaiah, and read Ch 1:1-31, the 31 verses on page 1. How do I get this site to display page 2 starting with v. 32?

    How do I go from page to page? Thank you!

    We are one in Christ. Judgement is for those that reject our Jesus. Righteousness shall be accounted to those that cry ABBA father. to those that are converted. Glory to God in the highest. There is no God Like Jehovah

    Where does it say in the Bible about where satay comes back imitating Jesus and sits on my Zion. Claiming to be him?

    Wendall, may the Spirit grace you with understanding, the scriptures referring to the leaves of the tree are in Isaiah 6 and Ezekiel 47 and Revelation 22. These are prophesies about the Sons of God (us). Christ is the Tree of Life; therefore, we also become trees (of life). John 15: Abide in me and I in you. At our physical death we (children or the resurrection) shall put on Christ (BECOME ONE). 1 Corinthians 6:2-3 ......the saints shall judge the world......know ye not that we shall judge angels... the leaves (us) of the TREE (Christ) shall be for the healing of the nations (all mankind).

    Psalms 22:27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

    Isaiah 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.

    1 Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the saviour of all men, specially those that believe.

    1 Corinthians 2:9 For it is written ( Isaiah 64:4), Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath entered into the heart (mind) of man, the things God hath prepared for them that love him.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Wendall, the Spirit of understanding be upon you, the verses you are inquiring about are in Isaiah 6 and Ezekiel 47 and Revelation 22. Christ is the Tree of Life; however, when we depart this flesh and are one with Christ we also become trees (of life) and will judge the world and angels and our leaves will be for the healing of the nations. May the Spirit grace you with understanding. 1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written ( Isaiah 64:4), Eye hath not seen. nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart (mind) of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

    Revelation 22:2

    In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

    >>Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:2

    In the midst of the street - Here is the paradise of God, mentioned: Rev 2:7, Is the tree of life - Not one tree only, but many. Every month - That is, in inexpressible abundance. The variety, likewise, as well as the abundance of the fruits of the Spirit, may be intimated thereby. And the leaves are for the healing of the nations - For the continuing their health, not the restoring it; for no sickness is there.

    >>People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:2

    In the midst of its street. In the Revised Version this is attached to Revelation 22:1. It is the river of life that runs in the street. On each side of the river, watered by it, stands the tree of life . . . yielded her fruit every month. The thought is that it is always fruitful, not limited to certain seasons of fruit bearing. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. We are not to conclude that there were diseases to be healed, but that in the city were the means which banished disease and death." ( Genesis 2:10). Here there is a river, "clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb" ( Revelation 22:1) There was a tree of life in Paradise. In the New Jerusalem, on either side of the river stands the tree of life bearing twelve manner of fruits, or rather fruit twelve times a year, every month. The river and the tree are symbols of the life bestowed by the grace of God. The river flows from the throne of God and the Lamb; from the fountain whence life and immortality come. Everything about the tree is healthful. Even the leaves are for the healing of the nations. There is a book, a river and a tree of life. Christ is the life, and all refer in some way to Christ.

    Hi Wendall, Revelation 22:2 speaks of that tree.
