Isaiah 10 - Invasion Foretold

Invasion Foretold

Isa 10:28 He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he hath laid up his carriages:

The prophet speaks of the cities and the way that Assyrian's would enter Jerusalem.

Isa 10:29 They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled.

These are cities of the tribe of Benjamin, the tribe of King Saul.

Isa 10:30 Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim: cause it to be heard unto Laish, O poor Anathoth.

Gallim was the home of Phalti, who married Sauls daughter, who had been David's wife. David reclaimed her and Phalti cried out in anguish.

1 Sam 25:44 But Saul had given Michal his daughter, David's wife, to Phalti the son of Laish, which was of Gallim.

2 Sam 3:15 And Ishbosheth sent, and took her from her husband, even from Phaltiel the son of Laish.
2 Sam 3:16 And her husband went with her along weeping behind her to Bahurim. Then said Abner unto him, Go, return. And he returned.

He should have left her with him, for she mocked him and he had no more to do with her.

O poor Anathoth; this was Jeremiah's home town.

Jer 1:1 The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests that were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin:

Isa 10:31 Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather themselves to flee.

The people flee from the cities.

Isa 10:32 As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.

Assyria will advance and shake it's hand at Jerusalem. This is as far as the army of the Assyrians came against Judah. They were stopped here when the LORD killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night. (2King 19:35)

Isa 10:33 Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled.
Isa 10:34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.

The mighty army, princes and haughty leaders of the Assyrian army would be cut down in one day, by the power of God.
