Welcome to Isaiah 47, I hope you enjoy reading this Book of Isaiah. But before we get right into Isaiah 47 let us give homage to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and after doing this we can read Book of Isaiah.
4 I will continue to carry you even when you are old. I will take good care of you even when your hair is gray.I have made you. And I will carry you I will take care of you. And I will save you.
I am the Lord.
The Word Became Flesh
The Deity of Jesus Christ
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it
Colossians 1: 15
The Supremacy of the Son of God
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
The Death of Jesus
33 At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. 34 And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).[a]
35 When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.”
36 Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said.
37 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.
38 The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
1 Peter 1:3
[ Praise to God for a Living Hope ] Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Babylon Will Fall
47 “City of Babylon,
go down and sit in the dust.
Leave your throne and sit on the ground.
City of the Babylonians,
your life will not be comfortable
and easy anymore.
2 Get millstones and grind some flour like a female slave.
Take your veil off.
Lift your skirts up. Make your legs bare.
Wade through the streams.
3 Everyone will see your naked body.
Everyone will see your shame.
I will pay you back for what you did.
I will not spare any of your people.”
4 The one who sets us free is the Holy One of Israel.
His name is The Lord Who Rules Over All.
5 The Lord says, “City of the Babylonians,
go into a dark prison and sit there quietly.
You will not be called
the queen of kingdoms anymore.
6 I was angry with my people.
I treated them as if they did not belong to me.
I handed them over to you.
And you did not show them any pity.
You even placed heavy loads on their old people.
7 You said, ‘I will continue to be queen forever!’
But you did not think about what you were doing.
You did not consider how things might turn out.
8 “So listen, you who love pleasure.
You think you are safe and secure.
You say to yourself,
‘I am like a god.
No one is greater than I am.
I’ll never be a widow.
And my children will never be taken away from me.’
9 But both of those things will happen to you in a moment.
They will take place on a single day.
You will lose your children.
And you will become a widow.
That is what will happen to you.
All of your evil magic
and powerful spells will not save you.
10 You have felt secure in your evil ways.
You have said, ‘No one sees what I’m doing.’
Your wisdom and knowledge lead you down the wrong path.
You say to yourself,
‘I am like a god. No one is greater than I am.’
11 So horrible trouble will come on you.
You will not know how to use your evil magic to make it go away.
Great trouble will fall on you.
No amount of money can keep it away.
Something terrible will happen to you all at once.
You will not see it coming ahead of time.
12 “So keep on casting your magic spells.
Keep on practicing your evil magic.
You have been doing those things ever since you were a child.
Perhaps they will help you.
Maybe they will scare your enemies away.
13 All of the advice you have received
has only worn you out!
Let those who study the heavens come forward.
They claim to know what is going to happen
by watching the stars every month.
So let them save you from the trouble
that is coming on you.
14 They are just like straw.
Fire will burn them up.
They can’t even save themselves
from the powerful flames.
They are not like coals that can warm anyone.
They are not like a fire to sit by.
15 They can’t do you any good.
You have done business with them ever since you were a child.
You have always asked them for advice.
All of them are bewildered and continue in their own ways.
None of them can save you.”
