Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Isaiah 16



Verses 1-14


The Burden of Moab Continued

1. God’s call to Moab to repent (Isaiah 16:1-5) 2. Moab’s pride and judgment (Isaiah 16:6-14)The fifteenth and sixteenth chapters form one prophecy. Moab’s land bordered on the land of Israel. The historical facts concerning Moab may be studied and followed through the following passages: 1 Samuel 14:47; 2 Samuel 8:2; 2 Kings 1:11; 2 Kings 3:4;2 Chronicles 20:1-37; 2 Kings 8:20;2 Kings 24:2. Moab’s sin and judgment are frequently mentioned by the prophet. See Amos 2:1-3. A great past judgment of Moab’s is described in 15:1-9. The call in chapter 16:1 to send a lamb has nothing to do with Him who is “the lamb of God.” The exhortation becomes clear by reading 2 Samuel 8:2 and 2 Kings 3:4-5. Christ, however, is in view in verse 5, chapter 16(Isaiah 16:5). A remnant of Moab is to be left and in the time of the end we find Moab mentioned again. Read Isaiah 11:14 and Daniel 11:41. The final ruin of Moab is described in Isaiah 25:10-12.
