Isaiah 1:30 Meaning and Commentary

Isaiah 1:30

For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth
Shall be stripped of all their dependencies and self confidence, and be as naked and as bare as an oak that has cast its leaves; or thus, in a way of just retaliation, since they have desired oaks, and sacrificed under them, they shall be like them as in the wintertime, stripped of all their riches, honour, substance, and desirable things; see ( Revelation 18:12-19 ) and as a garden that hath no water;
in which the herbs and plants are dried up and withered: it signifies the uncomfortable condition such shall be in, as before.

Isaiah 1:30 In-Context

28 But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the LORD will perish.
29 “You will be ashamed because of the sacred oaks in which you have delighted; you will be disgraced because of the gardens that you have chosen.
30 You will be like an oak with fading leaves, like a garden without water.
31 The mighty man will become tinder and his work a spark; both will burn together, with no one to quench the fire.”
