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

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

Not surprisingly, one definition for the word “songstress” is “doorkeeper”.

others”.  There is an imperative (commanding; imperious; authoritatively-commanding) component, 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 because Babylonians think (suppose; imagine; believe) that  “they” are Gods,  so they declare,  “Sing to “us” (us Babylonian tyrants) one of the “Songs-of-Zion”. Songs are sung in the following circumstances:

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

(2) as individual ( personal) laments

(3) at times of distress – 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) in 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

barricade
Jehovah’s salvation functions as a wall or barricade.

1. In that day,  this “song” (summons to acknowledge Jehovah and express Thanksgiving unto  Him) will be sung to us in the land of Judah’s mighty  (shielded; protected) community. God makes “salvation”  (redemption; deliverance; rescue; recovery) become His walls  (barricades; barriers; roadblocks) and ramparts (bulwarks; fortifications).

open gate2. “Open the gates”, so a righteous nation  (people; tribe ) , which has been  preserved (maintained in its original state) in order to foster (promote the development of) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) , may enter.

3. They are Steadfast (resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering) in their determination (mind and heart; single-mindedness; will-power) to authorize sharp (sudden; abrupt) retribution (punishment inflicted for a criminal act) so as to restore peace (wholeness; soundness; welfare), because their confidence is in you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons).  

.

.

Jehovah is steady as a rock = totally reliable
Jehovah is steady as a rock = totally reliable

4. Trust in Jehovah forever (always)  because,  through Jehovah, the God of Israel,  the rock (God; anchor; reliablity; surety) of man’s eternal salvation is found.

disdainful person

duty

18. This generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership looks pregnant (expectant; eager excited), they claim to be in-labor  (“worn-down-in-strength”; sick and tired;  afflicted) but they only bring-forth (produce; spawn; generate; make) wind (gas; farts; emissions of foul air-like fluid substance from Salt Lake’s presiding “ass-holes”; flatulence; airlike fluid substance which expands freely to fill any space available).

wake-up call
Wake-everyone-up (alert everyone; direct-everyone’s-attention) to their “ends” (intentions; goals; aims; designs; ambitions; aspirations) because this generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership  spends its time  dwelling-on (speaking at-length about) “dust” (minute particles of waste-matter; a-heap-of-rubbish).

19. This generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership lives (exists; has-its-being; lives-and-breathes) to cause (precipitate; promote; generate; produce; bring-about) your (Israel’s people’s; rank and file Mormon’s) death…. death of my vessels.

20. Go,  my people! Enter into your private-places (secret-chambers; closets) and shut the doors behind you. Hide for a little while until my wrath (anger; rage; infliction of punishment) passes-over.

Daddy
So…..you losers …..Who’s YOUR Daddy? is an expression commonly used as a boastful “claim-of-dominance” over Mormonism’s  Israelite (rank and file Mormon) listeners. Salt Lake’s presiding Priesthood Authorities constantly ask rank and file Mormons to think about this and engage themselves in time-wasting genealogical pursuits. If they studied the Old Testament carefully they would know the answer to the question. 

21. Indeed (as a matter of fact), Behold (something surprising, but could have been predicted), Jehovah is going-out (moving away from something and coming into view; 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; ruling) in the of world (kingdom) of Mormonism, over this generation of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  and denuding (stripping; plundering; robbing) Israelite (rank and file) members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints , having in mind, their  Israelitebloodline (Israelite-pedigree; Israelite-stock; Israelite-strain; Israelite-lineage; Israelite-genealogy; Israelite-ancestors; Israelite-line of descent) so Salt Lake’s General Authorities will no longer be able to conceal (hide; cover; cloak) their slaughter of Israel’s-people (rank and file Mormons).
