Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO ISAIAH 18\\

This chapter is a prophecy of the desolation of a land or country,
described by the wings with which it was shaded, and by the rivers by
which it was situated, \\#Isa 18:1\\ by its messengers and message to
another nation, which is also described, \\#Isa 18:2\\ all the nations
of the world are called upon to observe the judgment about to be
inflicted on it, \\#Isa 18:3\\ and a promise is made, that at the same
time God will take up his rest and dwelling among his own people, and
refresh and protect them, \\#Isa 18:4\\ and the time, and manner, and
nature of the destruction of the people before threatened, are
metaphorically expressed, \\#Isa 18:5,6\\ and the issue of all will be
the glory of God, since these people will be brought, in after times,
as a present to him in Mount Zion, \\#Isa 18:7\\.
