    'daughter of babylon' hopefully is a symbolic generalization of any person that is wrapped up entirely in carnality and is a warning about the temporal nature of material things. What is sad is that people will use passages like this to justify their callousness to the suffering of others...'they deserve what they got, they are infidels, heathen, etc. etc'.

    WOW! WOW! WOW! where applicable in this chapter, it appears those in this chapter received or were given the identical 'wrath of God' that will be given to the 'women on the the beast' in the book Revelation; it is like 8 months, 3 weeks, 6 days, 'ready or not' it is going to HAPPEN. To GOD be the Glory Honor and Praise cause HE IS better than GOOD cause we are give the blood of Jesus to save us

    I believed even though God was wrath with Israel, he put them in the hands of the Chaldean because he saw good in them in spite of; but they became jealous of Israel and began to treat them unkind in very harsh ways as their wicked increased This treatment displeased the Lord as a result he send a warning to Babylonians of his intentions which result from their behaviors against him. He is God

    Hi Irene; Do you understand what happened by the first carrying away of Israel by Assyria, and then of Jerusalem and Judah by Nebuchadnezzar? The kingdom of God through the house of David was taken away because they were unworthy; and so until the end of the times of the Gentiles are they, and we, subjected to the Nations. For Jesus' sake we accept and submit to the punishment till Jesus returns.

    The 70 yrs. Babylonian captivity; God didn't begin to 'feel sorry' for His people and 'changed His mind' after - 70 yrs ?! are you kidding me?! God is not a man to change; I change not, therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed, Mal. 3:6. The 70 yrs. was His plan. The God I serve KNOWS what He is about!!! Thank God I can't change His mind! I want a GOD: not a marshmallow.

    I THINK ISIAH WAS SPEAKING TO THE BABYLONIAN NATION TELLING THEM THAT THEY WERE GOING TO LOSE THEIR POWER IN THE WORLD. ISIAH TOLD THEM THAT GOD HAD ALLOWED HIS PEOPLE, THE JEWS, TO COME INTO CAPTIVITY TO THE BABYLON NATION TO PUNISH THEM BUT THAT HE WAS HAVNG A CHANGE OF HEART SEEING HOW BADLY THE BABYLONIANS TREATED HIS PEOPLE AND THEIR SUFFERING .HE WAS LETTING THE BABYLONIANS KNOW THAT REDEMPTION WAS NEAR FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM THE BONDS OF SERVITUDE TO THEM AND THAT THE BABYLONIAN GREATNESS AS A NATION WOULD BE GREATLY DIMINISHED .

    Verse 6 is describing that the prophets of the Bible that foretell of future events are yoked with this heavy burden of warning people of the end of days. Verse 7 tells that even forewarned in the past, the modern nations will believe it will not happen. VERSE 8, IS TALKING ABOUT NATIONS THAT HAVE A STRONG MILITARY AND BELIVE THEIR COUNTRY WILL NEVER BE OVERTAKEN. Verse 9 is saying that WW3 will start in a moment and is the result of acquiring advanced technology which I think is nuclear armament. Verse 12 is talking about nations that rely on their military to save them. Man has labored from the beginning to gain knowledge for protection. Perhaps verse 13 is the understanding of powers beyond this world, beyond what scientific knowledge can understand. This is a call for God to intervene and prevent the destruction of earth. Perhaps verse 14 is saying nuclear fire will consume the earth even if forewarned and all nations will retreat to their homelands with the knowledge that nuclear fallout kills everyone because it is in the air one breathes over the entire earth, Eden!

    This chapter is about people who were born into such chaos that their hearts are very hurt. They have no choice but to lie to themselves with wisdom and knowledge and intellectualisation. All the while they will feel symptoms which we describe as mental illness depression, panic, and worse. Their hearts speak. They are wearied by the explanations they give themselves. They deny the horror within, and so conjour it in the world around them in order to see it more clearly, like Walter White. They will only find peace in intense self examination, self deprivation, self discipline, and finally the love of another, possibly Jesus Christ.
