Isaiah 5:13


Therefore my people
[`am] are gone into captivity, [galah] because they have no knowledge: [da`ath] and their honourable [kabowd] men [math] are famished, [ra`ab] and their multitude [hamown]
dried up
[tsicheh] with thirst. [tsama’] KJV-Interlinear


Therefore My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge; And their
honorable men are famished, And their multitude is parched with thirst.  NASB

Begin study:


My people are gone into captivity, is a phrase speaking of a future event as though it were happening in the current time. This makes the event certain, for the statement of an occurrence makes it so.

My people are the people of God, believers who have gone negative and have chosen the life of indulgence and frivolity.

And they are all gone because they rejected doctrine. They did not know doctrine because they did not learn it. They did not learn it because they were neither interested nor impressed with the threats of God.

People who reject truth are wise in their own eyes, clever in their own thinking. They believe that they know better, and can do better, and have no need of anything higher than they.

And this applies not only to the generation of Isaiah’s time when they will one day face the onslaught of the Babylonian armies, but it will certainly apply to the last days of history, when the entire world has gone negative to the greatest of apostasies of all of history.

But, it also applies today and to every generation on an individual basis, when people give lip service to God, but never commit themselves to a daily study of doctrine. It is far easier to post cute little remarks on an internet page, but it takes more commitment to actually take up a daily study and commit ones daily life to Gods mandates, as God requires.

In just a few verses this type of frivolous front is condemned and the repercussions of that non-commitment are very dramatic. That drama is generally not realized until after death and then it is too late.

Every day you are alive, you have the opportunity to change. And every day more and more people simply hold on to their own defined ways, never acknowledging that they are totally wrong.

And so, captivity, famished, and thirst, replace the party-on, drinking, disregard of responsibility attitude. All that people pursue they never attain, and that which they attain they lose. The results are far worse than any can imagine, but then everyone who chooses the life of self-righteousness, or corruption, or disregard of truth, never take the repercussions of judgment seriously.

Those who disregard the mandates of the scriptures, do not take them seriously, and that is a very big mistake.



End of study





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.
