Isaiah 03:09

Isaiah 3:9


9 The shew
[hakkarah] of their countenance [paniym] doth witness against them; [`anah] and
they declare
[nagad] their sin [chatta’ah] as Sodom, [Cadom] they hide
[kachad] it not. Woe [‘owy] unto their soul [nephesh]!
for they have rewarded
[gamal] evil [ra`] unto themselves.  KJV-Interlinear


9 The
expression of their faces bears witness against them. And they display their
sin like Sodom; They do not even conceal it. Woe to them! For they have brought
evil on themselves.  NASB

When people reject truth, is becomes a reflection off of their very faces. Their sins are obvious. Their attitude is not hidden from public view. Their faces demonstrate their countenance, their expressions demonstrate their pride, their ego, their smugness, their arrogance, their impudence.

Witness against them, is a reference to the expression of the face, the outward look, as it correlates to the content of their soul. Their soul is degenerate, and therefore their outward appearance and actions reflect that content. What the spiritually dysfunctional, the spiritually destitute soul portrays, is nothing short of evil.

As Sodom, means that in Sodom all sin was public and not hidden from anyone. And so it is with all evil people.

Sooner or later as the evil consumes the soul, then their morals, their integrity, their attitude, their conscience all come to the surface and they care nothing about what they think, or say, or do, and they care nothing of what others see or think of them. They do not even attempt to hide their true thoughts or opinions. Their attitude is open and bold.

Woe to their soul, means they bring woe upon themselves.

They have rewarded evil, means that whatever punishment they receive, they have done it to themselves. They have no excuses, no one to blame.

Evil visits evil. Perpetual judgment is the reward of perpetual evil.

Nothing good ever comes out of evil. Nothing positive ever comes out of evil. If you choose to reside outside of truth and inside of evil, then you are your own worst enemy. You destroy yourself. Like a cancer, evil consumes its host.





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
