Isaiah 2v6-22 Diagram

It’s been a little while since my last post so I figured I’d put a diagram or two up.

Here’s the first: it’s a diagram (of sorts) for Isaiah 2v6-22.

I noticed two significant things from this:

  1. the repetition and contrast of high/low vocabulary (see the green and blue circles and the word lists at the bottom of the page)
  2. the similarity and repeat phrases between the sections which address God’s people (vv6-11) and the whole of the world (vv12-19). Isaiah seems to be emphasising that idolatry within God’s people is just as possible, just as present and just as sinful as it is among the pagans. The same judgement faces both!
