Isaiah 58

Arlin Sorensen's Thoughts on Scripture

Isaiah 58 has the prophet delivering a hard realization – God’s people are sinners.  “Cry aloud; do not hold back; lift up your voice like a trumpet; declare to my people their transgression, to the house of Jacob their sins”.  After all, they were going through the motions of walking in obedience.  They had the appearance of following God.  “They seek me daily and delight to know my ways, as if they were a nation that did righteousness and did not forsake the judgment of their God; they ask of me righteous judgments; they delight to draw near to God”.
