1 The burden of the valley of vision. What aileth thee now, that thou art wholly gone up to the housetops?

2 Thou that art full of stirs, a tumultuous city, joyous city. Thy slain men are not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle.

3 All thy rulers are fled together, they are bound by the archers. All that are found in thee are bound together, which have fled from far.

4 Therefore said I, Look away from me. I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.

5 For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Almighty Power of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains.

6 And Elam bare the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield.

7 And it shall come to pass, that thy choicest valleys shall be full of chariots, and the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.

8 And he discovered the covering of Juda, and thou didst look in that day to the armour of the house of the forest.

9 Ye have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many. And ye gathered together the waters of the lower pool.

10 And ye have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses have ye broken down to fortify the wall.

11 Ye made also a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool. But ye have not looked unto the maker thereof, neither had respect unto him that fashioned it long ago.

12 And in that day did the Almighty Power of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:

13 And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine. Let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die.

14 And it was revealed in mine ears by the Almighty of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Almighty Power of hosts.

15 Thus saith the Almighty Power of hosts, Go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say,

16 What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock?

17 Behold, the Almighty will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee.

18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country. There shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord’s house.

19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.

20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:

21 And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Juda.

22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder. So he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place. And he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house.

24 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.

25 In that day, saith the Almighty of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall. And the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the Almighty hath spoken it.

Isaiah chapter 22 summary

The chapter contains a prophetic message attributed to Isaiah. It focuses on the judgment and turmoil that will befall Jerusalem, a prominent city within the House of Akobe. The Almighty, through Isaiah, foretells the impending calamity and devastation.

In this chapter, Isaiah describes the people of Jerusalem as engaging in revelry and complacency, oblivious to the impending danger. Their dead men didn’t die by the sword. Their rulers fled together. The Creator’s judgment is depicted as a consequence of their sinful behavior and disobedience. This is a stark reminder of the Almighty’s authority over Jerusalem. It is the city of David and it had its breaches broken. This prophecy takes place during the days of Hezekiah, king of Juda. Isaiah shares that Juda will violently be tossed around like a ball in a large country and will perish there.

This will begin when Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, is in office. The Almighty will clothe Eliakim strengthen him and place the government in his hands. Eliakim will be like a father to Juda and Jerusalem. He will have the key to the house of David

Isaiah’s message highlights the importance of repentance and humility rather than reliance on earthly power or self-sufficiency. The chapter predicts Jerusalem’s fall. But it also functions to show the Almighty will attempt to place the fate of the people in a competent leader’s hands. This is of course, if the people will allow it.

This is the summary of Isaiah chapter 22, Glory to the King of the House of Akobe.
