Isaiah 10 1 6 the hebrews prophets isaiah amos

Isaiah 10:1-6 The Hebrews Prophets: Isaiah & Amos

"Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees , to

deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my

people. Making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do

on the day of the reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you

run for help? Where will you leave your riches? Nothing will remain but to

cringe among the captives, of fall among the slain.. Yet for all this his anger

is not turned away. His hand is still upraised. "Woe to the Assyrian, the rod

of my anger, in whose hand is the club of the wrath! I send him against a

Godless nation, I dispatch him against a people who anger me, to seize loot and

snatch, and to trample them down like mud in the streets."

These writings, from the enscriptures of the bible some say philosophical,

inspire mystery, wonder and the relation to how true they are. I have a

monotheistic way of thinking, though the bible is said to be the writings of the

way of life of Moses and the Hebrews, I am puzzled by how certain writings

pertain to society, culture and the life of man and women today.

As I try to decipher this passage in my own words of Isaiah. One is speaking of

the oppression committed by man upon man. It is Jesus asking why man whom were

created as brother and sister making unjustly laws...deprive the poor of their

rights...withhold the justice from the oppressed of my people.

I strongly believe there is a judgment day. For all the wrongs committed in

society against one another and against oneself; as the sacred body that be.

Harming thy brethren, killing thy neighbor, steeling. All to satisfy the wants

for themselves. It is all competitive. Part of my heritage being of Blackfoot

Indian descent, the way of life is to create and live life from the gifts of

nature in which thy God provided. I can almost guarantee the society today

living of monetary value, would not know how to survive if everything all of a

sudden were taken away. A sudden exhausting rainfall, which flooded the cities,

and devoured the homes, and cars, and other belongings. Some consider this to

happen on Judgment Day or the day of Reckoning. As a punishment for man

creating these evil doings.

People today are so encompassed in the American Way of Living they cannot

sacrifice for a minute to live without..forks, eating with thyne hands...the


computers...telephones...steeling...killing...assaulting...raping...adultery. I

myself look forward to the day when I do not have to work two jobs and go to

school, to have a good house, a family, a nice car, to live happy. Now ask me

have I eaten with my hands, or walked to school or read the newspaper instead of

watched tv. Yes, to realize the best things in life are for free!

So how can one judge them? How can they pay for their sins. is it " the day of

Reckoning" or Judgment day the day in which the truth shall prevail.. So for

those people who know about this day... I dispatch him against a people who

anger me , seize loot and snatch , and to trample them down like mud in the


I believe a good person, inner person who has a good heart and does good will

see the light in Judgment day.. Those who deprive the poor, steel commit

adultery and follow the way of disobeying the 10 Commandments will pay for their


I, like many others in the same have a strong, yet kind heart. I question many

times what are my personal attributes and skills and many times reach the same

question not answered. Until a little birdie one day told me my heart is good

and kind, I care for those who don not care and help those who will not admit

they need help.

Yet at the same time I give to the poor and can feel for the poor, though

sometimes I feel like saying get a damn job. I have learned it is not that easy.

Mentally they just cannot do it, it's like living in a world without work.

What is one to do, just live? So am I depriving the poor of what they need?

All these questions have to have answers and rest, someday I believe they will

be answered on the day of Reckoning...Judgment day. In ending I am afraid of

this day as I relate to the bible God shall come not a man or animal but as

beast and will come take thyne which belongith in thy kindom of Heaven, and I

believe that is me.
