As usual, when God speaks to the nations, it is with a stern warning. But is that not evidence of His grace? It is the foolish person or nation that does not take heed when God gives warning of judgment.
Isaiah 49: 24-26b: Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the captives of the righteous be delivered?
But thus says the Lord:
“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children. I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh, and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine.”
