The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw
That is, the vision which he saw, for a new one here begins, though agreeable to what goes before; or the prophecy of future things, which he had given to him in a visionary way. The Targum paraphrases it,
``the word of prophecy, which Isaiah, the son of Amoz, prophesied:''or the thing, the "decree", as some choose to render it, the purpose of God concerning things to come, which was revealed to the prophet, and he here declares:
concerning Judah and Jerusalem;
the church and people of God, and what should befall them and their enemies in the latter day: this inscription stands for this and the three following chapters.
