In between Ephesians and Philippians we read one chapter of Proverbs and three chapters of Isaiah.
Proverbs 11. Proverbs of Solomon continued.
Isaiah 5. The Song of the Vineyard. it starts out beautiful, but tells of judgement. In chapter three was proclaimed two woes. Here comes six more woes.
In Isaiah 6 is told the famous call of Isaiah “Here am I, send me“. God answers by telling of all the hardships that will come with answering such a call. They will harden their hearts as Pharaoh hardened his.
Isaiah 7: “Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” After that promise it speaks of a coming disaster.
