Bible: Isa 2:22-3:5
2:22 Stop trusting in human beings,
whose life’s breath is in their nostrils.
For why should they be given special consideration?
A Coming Leadership Crisis
3:1 Look, the sovereign
is about to remove from Jerusalem 2 and Judah
every source of security, including 3
all the food and water, 4
3:2 the mighty men and warriors,
judges and prophets,
omen readers and leaders, 5
3:3 captains of groups of fifty,
the respected citizens, 6
advisers and those skilled in magical arts, 7
and those who know incantations.
malicious young men 9 will rule over them.
3:5 The people will treat each other harshly;
men will oppose each other;
neighbors will fight. 10
Youths will proudly defy the elderly
and riffraff will challenge those who were once respected. 11
