Isaiah Chapter 31 Summary

Welcome to, your online Bible Study supplement source. Today we have a chapter summary on Isaiah chapter 31. Before we get to the summary, let’s review the chapter below.

1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Akobe, neither seek the Almighty!

2 Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.

3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not Immortals; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the Almighty shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.

4 For thus hath the Almighty spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the Almighty of hosts come down to fight for mount Siyoni, and for the hill thereof.

5 As birds flying, so will the Almighty of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.

6 Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Akobe have deeply revolted.

7 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.

8 Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.

Isaiah chapter 31 summary; a chapter of Seeking Refuge in the Almighty

In the time of Isaiah, when the House of Akobe faced external threats, the people made a choice—whether to turn to human allies or to seek refuge in the Almighty Creator. The chapter opens with a warning: “Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help.” Instead of relying on the Almighty’s guidance, they sought the strength of Egypt’s military might. This was an act of disobedience.

Isaiah, the prophet, reminds them that the Almighty’s wisdom is far greater than the strategies of men. He asks, “Shall the Almighty not work for them that wait for Him?” The people’s hasty alliance with Egypt would prove to be in vain, as the Almighty’s plans would ultimately prevail.

The Creator, like a protective lion, defends His people.

Isaiah paints a vivid picture of the Almighty coming forth to protect His City, His cherished City. He promises, “The Almighty of hosts shall defend and protect Jerusalem, He shall deliver it, and passing over He shall preserve it.” This divine intervention would ensure the safety of Jerusalem against all odds.

The chapter concludes with a profound message—a message of hope and redemption. It stresses that those who seek refuge in the Almighty will find their strength renewed. Isaiah proclaims, “Return unto Him from whom the children of Akobe have deeply revolted.” He encourages them to turn back to the Creator and seek forgiveness.

In a world filled with political alliances and military strategies, Isaiah chapter 31 reminds us of the enduring truth. That truth is that our ultimate refuge lies in the Creator of Heaven and Earth. It’s a timeless lesson that continues to resonate. In times of uncertainty and danger, our faith and trust in the Almighty should be unwavering.

This is the summary of Isaiah chapter 31, Glory to the Creator of Heaven and of Earth.
