Isaiah 30

Verse 3

trust (See Scofield " :-") .

Verse 6

burden

(See Scofield " :-")

Verse 12

trust

(See Scofield " :-")

Verse 27

Behold

The imagery of Isaiah 30:27; Isaiah 30:28 is cumulative. Judah is making an alliance with Egypt when she might be in league with Him whose judgment upon the world-powers will be like a terrible thunder-tempest (v.27), turning streams into torrents neck-deep (v. 28, f.c.); who will sift the nations in their own sieve of vanity (or "destruction"), and put His bridle into the jaws of the peoples.

Verse 33

Tophet

See Jeremiah 7:31; Jeremiah 19:6; 2 Kings 23:10

Historically a place in the valley of Hinnom where human sacrifices were offered. The word means "place of fire." The symbolic reference is to the lake of fire and the doom of the Beast. Revelation 19:20.
