Isaiah 5:15



15 And the
mean man
[‘adam] shall be brought down, [shachach] and the mighty man [‘iysh]
shall be humbled,
[shaphel] and the eyes [`ayin] of the lofty [gaboahh]
shall be humbled:
[shaphel] KJV-Interlinear


15 So the
common man will be humbled, and the man of importance abased, The eyes of the
proud also will be abased. NASB

Begin study:


The mean or common man, which is a reference to anyone, the mighty man or anyone of importance, the lofty man or anyone who thinks highly of themselves, are all references to people who have rejected Gods doctrine, whether intentionally or through arrogance or lust or hate or indifference or for whatever reason, and have chosen the life of this world as their residence rather than the spiritual life provided by God.

This includes all unbelievers, and all who believe that they have a better idea as to maintaining a relationship with God, and certainly includes all who reject God for another god, or for the lusts of their heart.

This includes the pursuit of life through self-righteousness, through crime, through sin, through indifference, through abuse, through deceit, and so forth, wherein people seek pride in their own efforts and beliefs.

These will all be destroyed along with their beliefs and possessions and all that they have taken pride in during their life.

In the prior verse, where death gladly receives the dead, the destination is not emphasized, but the death process is emphasized.

Pursuit of this world and rejection or indifference toward God and truth, will lead not to success or fulfillment of ones life, but to certain death and failure and loss.

This needs to be made very clear. There is no success in this world. Not even if you become a million, billion, trillion, gazillionaire and own a country. Without Christ and doctrine, death and the land of the dead will receive you with open arms, and there you will be just like everyone else – dead and without any possessions.



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.
