The Prophecies Of Isaiah
In yesterday's passage we found the men living lives of greed and covetousness, perverting justice to gain riches. Their wives were delighted with them, walking around decked out in the finest apparel and jewelry, each of them trying to outdo her neighbor. But Isaiah warned them that the days would come when the beautifully styled hair of the women would be replaced by the baldness of a captive. The jewels and gorgeous clothing would be replaced by the ropes of a slave. The men who have toiled so tirelessly for dishonest gain will fall by the sword. They haven't cared for the plight of the widow and the orphan, so their own families will be widowed and orphaned.
