Summary of passage: All the nations will come over to Israel and be theirs. They will come in chains and bow before them, acknowledging God is with them. Israel will be saved by the Lord and will never be put to shame like the makers of idols will suffer. For the Lord, as Creator, did not intend for the earth to be empty. He is not deceptive; He is truthful. God again argues He is the only one who has foretold future events and there is no one apart from Him. Therefore, all you fugitives from the nations, come to Him and be saved. His words will never be revoked. And in the future, every knee will bow and every tongue will swear He alone is righteous. Those who disagree will be put to shame. But in the Lord all the descendants of Israel will be found righteous.
10) The nations will come over to them and be theirs; they will come in chains. They will bow down to Israel and plead, acknowledging God.
11a) All you ends of the earth, fugitives from the nations. Their gods cannot save and God foretold these events long ago
b) Romans 15:8-12 ”…the Gentiles may glorify God for his mercy…Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and sing praises to him, all you peoples…the Gentiles will hope in him.”
12a) Every knee would bow in the name of Jesus and confess Jesus is Lord to God’s glory. With the coming of Jesus
b) Personal Question. My answer: Literally.
Conclusions: I found this lesson puzzling as my short answers exhibit. I’m unsure of Question 12a and b I was confused: I will bow on my knees, splayed out in humility. I’m unsure how else to bow before the Lord Jesus.
End Note: I now know who the Cush are but the Sabeans? Interesting description here:
