Commands to Write in Isaiah

Investigating Writing and the Bible

Isaiah 8:1, 10:1, 30:8

In Isaiah, there are three commands regarding writing that give:

 

                      Direction–  The Lord said to me, “Take a large scroll and write on it with an ordinary pen: Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.” Is 8:1 (This name Isaiah was later directed to give his son.)

 

 

 

                                  WarningWoe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; Is 10:1

  

 

 

 

                                         CautionGo now, write it on a tablet for them, inscribe it on a scroll, that for the days to come it may be an everlasting witness. Is 30:8 (This written to caution the Israelites not to forget the obstinate nation, Egypt.)
