Isaiah 5:17



17 Then
shall the lambs
[kebes] feed [ra`ah] after their
[dober] and the waste places [chorbah] of the fat ones [meach]
shall strangers
[guwr] eat. [‘akal] KJV-Interlinear


17 Then the
lambs will graze as in their pasture, And strangers will eat in the waste
places of the wealthy. NASB

Begin study:


The devastation by the Lord will be so great and so complete, that the homes, the cities, the regions that were once occupied by people, especially the elite of society, will be utterly empty of life.

What will remain, will be the animals, domestic and otherwise. They will roam free, having no fences, no barriers to keep them in place, nothing to prevent them from roaming at their leisure.

And since the local population will be destroyed, then those who will come in to occupy what was once there, will be strangers, foreigners, or folks that did not originally live there, but will move in from another place.

These events will occur to a lesser extent during the Babylonian invasion and captivity. But the real event of Gods destruction and the total wipeout of the population, will not occur until the end days, during the Tribulation.

It is then that the worlds evil population will be destroyed, but animals will miraculously survive.

Lambs, is a term that is generally used throughout the scriptures to designate Gods people.

And so, after the last and final destruction, it will not be evil people who will survive, but Gods people, believers that have in one way or another, been in hiding and then will come out of hiding, having been rescued, to then occupy the lands that will have been destroyed, but had been occupied by the worlds evil population.

For anyone who is facing difficulties, and have similarly been obedient to the mandates of Gods word, having grown up in their spiritual life, then this verse is yet another of many promises of rescue and deliverance in times of trouble.

Remain faithful to your daily studies and utilize those studies in your daily life, thus enhancing your spiritual growth, and there will always be a certainty of rescue by God from disaster.

However, if you ignore these words, and are indifferent toward God and doctrine, then what do you suppose will be waiting for you?



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.
