Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter Twenty-Six – verses 1- 20**

A Song of Praise
A noteworthy feature with regard to the root verb shyr-pronounced-sir is the focus on “summoning”

shophar
Not surprisingly, one definition for the word “songstress” is “doorkeeper”.There is an imperative (commanding; imperious; authoritatively-commanding) component, to the Hebrew root-verb “to sing”. Not surprisingly, one definition for the word “songstress” is “doorkeeper”. The word “sing” is used to indicate God as the addressee, i.e.  (to-God/for-God) or the song’s content (“about-God”). In (Psalms 137:3) the word is used sarcastically in a summons by Babylonians to the exiles (Israel’s-people) to sing “the-songs-of-Zion” – It is the only time in the Old Testament when a “song” is NOT offered to Jehovah and this is so, exclusively,  because Babylonians think (suppose; imagine; believe) that  “they” are Gods,  so they declare,  “Sing to “us” (us God-like Babylonian tyrants) one of the “Songs-of-Zion”. Songs are sung in the following circumstances:

 (1) especially after successfully surviving situations of distress in the form of unjust accusations, mockery or threats from enemies. In this instance “shyr” joins other terms associated with a proclamation. Such songs are characterized by the “nearness-of-God” and the human response God’s saving intervention, e.g. (Psalms 96 and 98)

(1) A “New Song” declaring a new and successful life blessed by God.

(2) an individual (personal; private) lament.

(3) at times of distress (heartache; heartbreak; suffering; anguish)  – in such songs, authors recall the past glory of David and anticipate a new “messianic” period of salvation. They are born out of anticipation and trust in Jehovah.

(4) a direct or indirect summons to praise which expresses joy and gratitude for Jehovah’s election as well as His protection of Zion, His help for the poor and in recollection, as a community of Jehovah’s miraculous deeds.

Daddy
So…..you Israelite losers! …..Who’s YOUR Daddy? This question is a leadership taunt commonly used as a boastful “claim-of-dominance” over Mormonism’s  Israelite (rank and file Mormon) listeners. Salt Lake’s presiding Priesthood Authorities constantly require rank and file Mormons to engage in time-wasting genealogical pursuits. If they studied the Old Testament carefully they would know the answer to the question. Their ancestral-“Daddy” is none other than Father, Abraham, himself.

21. Indeed (as a matter of fact), Lo and behold (something surprising, but could have been predicted), Jehovah is going-out (coming-out-from emerging; coming-forth) from His dwelling-place (habitation; residence; home; place-of-abiding) in order to punish the sin (perversity; depravity) of those who are reigning (occupying the throne in ; running; ruling) the world (kingdom) of Mormonism, in order to supplant (override; displace; supersede; replace) this generation of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  and denude (strip; plunder; rob) Israelites (rank and file Mormons) of their The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints , having in min (coveting; greedy for; lusting-after)   Israelite’s-Royalty. From now on Salt Lake’s General Authorities will not be able to conceal (hide; cover; cloak) their cold-blooded slaughter (sacrifice; murder) of Israel’s-people (rank and file Mormons).
