Reading Isaiah’s Mind Chapter 41 verses 11 thru 21

11. Surely (without doubt; certainly), all those who snort (hold you in contempt; accusations of being “out of order” and disrespectful; express indignation, derision, or incredulity) at you,  will be put to shame and they be as (seem-like) nothing and will seem like lost and wandering  “men-of-opposition” to you. You may inquire-into (seek to know the purposes and intentions of) them but you must never come-to (arrive at; attain-to) a knowledge* (practical understanding; concerned with the actual doing or use of something rather than with theory and ideas.) of the men-of “Salt-Lake’s Acquisition (conquest; avenging) Of Your Authority”. They are  “empty” (vacuous; unintelligent; mindless) men and as such they will fail (be unsuccessful in ) being “MEN OF SALT LAKE’S MASSIVE SIEGE AGAINST YOU”

.

*.Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, information, descriptions, or skills, which is acquired through degrees of experience or education by perceiving, discovering, or learning. Knowledge can refer to a theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.

13. Indeed (if truth be told), I , Jehovah, your God,  am the one who is taking (grasping tightly;  grabbing hold of)  your right hand* …the one saying unto you, “Don’t be afraid. I’m your helper.

* right-hand –  The right side of things is recognized in many ways as better than the left. The south and north sides of the earth are distinguished as “yamin” (right) and “sem’ol’ (left; Job 23: 9), the right being the sunnier, brighter side, and the left the bleak and dark side, ill-omened and unlucky, where evil generates. “Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land”. The right side, or right limb, of a person receives special prominence; the place of honor is at his right. “Upon thy right hand did stand the queen”. Solomon placed a seat of honor for his mother, the queen, on his right side. The right eye was the most important and most vital member of the body. Nahash the Ammonite, as a reproach upon all Israel, purposed putting out the right eye of all men in Jabesh-gilead. The prophet predicted, “Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! . . . his right eye shall be utterly darkened”. The priest in purifying the leper,  put some of the blood of the sacrifice on the tip of his right ear, the thumb of his right hand, and the great toe of his right foot; he also used his right finger to sprinkle the oil before the altar (Lev. xiv. 14, 16), and received as his share of the peace-offering the right shoulder.

Threshing floor 70
The process of threshing was performed generally by spreading the sheaves on the threshing floor and causing oxen and cattle to tread repeatedly over them, loosening the edible part of cereal grain (or other crop) from the scaly, inedible chaff that surrounds it Then winnowing forks were used to throw the mixture into the air so the wind could blow away the chaff, leaving only the good grain on the floor.

15.  Behold (a new turn of events, often with the suggestion that although surprising, it could in fact have been predicted). You’ll become a sharp (salient; piercing; pointed; razor edged; keen-edged; thorny; penetrating) and new (contemporary; leading-edge; modern; state-of-the-artthreshing-sledge (implement used to separate cereals edible grain from useless chaff) equipped-with (fastened-with; secured-with) double-edged (sarcastic; sardonic; mocking; taunting; disrespectful) swords (words) underlying (intrinsic; fundamental to the nature of) Israel’s Authority with a terrible sting  (burning-sensation; painful-awareness). You (Israel’s people) will thresh (trample; tread; break-to-pieces) the proud (eminent in power; exalted; exalting themselves; lifting-themselves-up) and crush Mormon General Prophets and apostles and priesthood  leaders holding Salt Lake’s authority will be designated (officially assigned a specified status) as chaff (trash; garbage; rubbish).

Threshing– Threshing floors are constructed in the fields, preferably in an exposed position in order to get the full benefit of the winds. If there is a danger of marauders they are clustered together close to the village.  will The floor is a level, circular area 25 to 40 ft. (7½ to 12 m.) in diameter, prepared by first picking out the stones, and then tamping or coating it with clay. A border of stones keep in the grain. The normal method of threshing seems to have been by the trampling effect of oxen or donkey hoofs as these animals were driven around the floor. (Dt. 25:4), or by the use of a drag, the bottom of which was studded (2 S. 24:22). The supply of unthreshed grain was kept in the center of the floor and fed into the path of the animals. Constant turning of the partly threshed grain hastened the process of breaking all the stalks into short pieces and tearing off the husks. This mixture of chaff and grain was then winnowed by tossing it into the air so that “the wind may blow away the chaff”. When the chaff was gone, the grain was tossed in a wooden tray to separate from it the stones and lumps of soil which clung to the roots when the grain was reaped. The difference in weight between the stones and grain makes separation by this process possible. The grain was then stored in the common store jar, usually for home use.

Olive tree

19.  I’ve  placed (put; planted) in the desert (badlands; forsaken-place; desolation; middle of nowhere; wilderness) a Cedar-tree (a family tree that firmly rooted), and acacia   (extraordinarily hard wood) that, despite its appearance of strength and its long-established (time-honored; accepted; orthodox; pioneering;  official) root-system,  it is, if truth be told,   my footstool*and I have set  (positioned; deposited; planted; stood) an olive-tree* (anointed-family-tree) in the desert with (connected-with; associated-with ) the  destitute (Israel’s people; those who lack; those who are needy; those who are poor) who endure (persevere; survive) and remain rigidly upright or straight, as a means to unite (unify) them.   

*Footstool – .the throne and throne’s footstool are really meant to convey, namely, powerful regal control – God’s sovereign control of the heavens is such that it is as if they were His very throne, and His sovereign control over the earth is such that it is as if it were merely the place where He rests His feet. Just as God’s control over the earth is so complete that it is just as if it were a footstool to Him, so His domination and control over all His enemies will be made so complete that it will be as if all who oppose Him were merely furniture beneath His feet. to be a footstool, is to be reduced to entire subjection.

*olive tree – Anointing oilOlive oil is the product of the olive fruit and is used to anoint (consecrate individuals to God’s service. It represents the presence of God’s spirit and power. But when you press the fruit  you won’t find oil, only a white sap. Also, the fruit tastes very bitter. To get the oil, the fruit and its seed have to be crushed by a tremendous weight in an olive press. The crushing also removes the bitterness of the olive .
